Another great day yesterday as the Conductor handed out 4 winners including two 7/1 shots. We’ll take our lump of cash and go for Keeneland’s jugular in the late pick 5. Let’s have a weekend, Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) Alw 69000n1x
#10 Trappezoid (10/1) – He ran some big figures on dirt as a 3-year-old and has only raced once this year. With maturity he has room to step forward and his dam has produced a turf winner, so the new surface doesn’t concern the Conductor. Trainer Bret Calhoun is 19% with a +$0.37 ROI this year with runners off a 3 month+ layoff and the favorites have tough posts in here.
Race 7: 1 Mile. F.Clm 50000b
*Never a Doubt Saturday Stone Cold Lock of the Day #7 Lil Vie (3/1) – She dueled and drew off in her last start in impressive fashion. This race is devoid of early pace and she should be able to get on the early lead where she does her best running. She’ll take them all the way around.
Race 8: 1½ Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 71000n2x
#2 Nigh Owl (6/1) – He should improve in the second start off the long layoff and his last start was very solid. He’ll appreciate the added distance and the Conductor loves the Billy Mott/Leparoux combo going long on the turf. The Kentucky Downs shippers have been winning the entire Keeneland meet.
Race 9: 7 Furlongs. F.RavenRun-G2
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Blamed (15/1) – She’s dominated her competition at Sunland and Zia Park and now gets a chance to take on the big girls. The Conductor loves her steady progression, wins at multiple distances and trainer upgrade to Mott. She’s as fast as any of these other girls on paper and the Conductor prays her price stays high.
Race 10: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 67k
#1 Lady Leah (5/1) – Drawn well to the inside, she was heavily bet in her debut and ran a quality 2nd. She figures to enjoy the added distance she gets today and the Conductor loves that Jose Ortiz road her in her debut as well.
