Race 1: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 71k
#6 Miss Imperfection (15/1) – This filly’s work tab screams to the Conductor that she’s ready to roll and her sire wins at a 16% clip with 1st time starters. Trainer Kellyn Gorder has a positive ROI this year with debut runners as well.
Race 2: 1 Mile. F.OC 80000b
#6 Whoa Nellie (4/1) – This filly looks to get a perfect trip, stalking a hot pace and swooping on the turn.
Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. OC 62500n2x
#6 Major Cabbie (10/1) – Throw out his last race on turf, his two dirt efforts in the Miller barn give him every chance. He’s working well leading up to this one.
Race 4: 1 1/16 Mile. Mdn 71k
#3 Portos (4/1) – This colt closed into a tepid pace and ran a huge late pace figure in his debut. The Conductor would love 4/1.
Race 5: 7 Furlongs. OC 75000n2L
#7 Peruvian Boy (8/1) – He’s faced the toughest competition in the field and the Conductor sees him in a great spot when they turn from home. His works suggest he’s on the improve.
Race 6: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) G2 Woodford Stakes
#3 Imprimis (2/1) – With a clean trip he towers over this field.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.G2 Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes
#4 Danuska’s My Girl (6/1) – West coast shippers are always dangerous in dirt sprints at Keeneland. This girl is also steadily progressing and has a major chance to wire this field.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.G1 First Lady Stakes
#7 Indian Blessing (12/1) – There is an abundance of pace signed on in here and this mare looks to get a nice setup. She’s hit the board in every start in America and the Conductor will key her in the exacta and trifecta. The Conductor certainly sees #4 Uni (4/1) as the likeliest winner.
Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. G1 Claiborne Breeders’ Futurity
#5 Enforceable (15/1) – #1 Tap It To Win (3/1) is the one to beat, but this colt will be the Conductor’s key to the race. Additionally, he’s the only one proven he can go this far and will be closing late with a hot pace in front of him.
Race 10: 1 Mile. (Turf) G1 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #8 Vintager (10/1) – The Conductor isn’t impressed with the American contingent. Obviously Chad Brown can’t be ignored with #4 Valid Point (5/1), but he’s going to take a swing with this European shipper. He’s in good form and trainer Charles Appleby has also had success in America.
Race 11: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 71k
#5 Further Lane (4/1) – She’s certainly working like she’s a good one at Keeneland for top connections.
