Yes, Mr. Conductor, Yes! I need to get my hands on his pony crystal ball. A nice 6/1 #gullet shot winner Thursday at Keeneland along with a 29/1 shot running 4th and a 44/1 shot running 3rd. We bow to him, but as always we passengers want more. You’re only as good as your last race. Skip.
Race 5: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 110000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Mrs. Astor (6/1) – The Conductor was very impressed with this filly’s maiden breaker last time. She was wide and uncovered the entire turn and still powered home, running a strong late pace figure. This race is wide open and she should get a nice ground saving trip. 5/1 or better would have the Conductor giddy with joy. Let’s make it back to back #gullets.
Race 7: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.FanDuel Limestone Stakes
#4 Accomplished Girl (6/1) – The Conductor cashed on this filly last time after a tough trip in her debut. She ran them off their feet and will now take on winners for the first time. Even though last time she went gate to wire, the Conductor’s trained eye sees that she’s handy enough to stalk and pounce. There will be a scorching pace set up front in this one. The Conductor is looking for Zayas to sit just behind the dueling leaders and tip out entering the stretch.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) G1 Maker’s Mark Mile
#6 In Love (30/1) – #7 Modern Games (3/5) obviously beats this over matched field. However, we can still make some money and sweet love in this race. This old gelding can beat the rest of the bunch with his A game and he looks primed for a top effort. He made a middle move in his prep race on synthetic and now gets back to his best distance and surface today. He’s won a Grade 1 over this Keeneland turf course going a mile and we just need him to run 2nd.
