Preakness time, Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. G3 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash Stakes
#5 Landeskog (5/2) – This gelding won his prep nicely off the layoff last time and is working well entering today. He’s shown the Conductor he has talent in his young career and the Conductor will single to start of this bad boy.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Laurel Futurity
#6 Arrest Me Red (6/1) – He won his debut easily and stretches out for the first time today. Trainer Arnaud Delacor is a ridiculous 38% with a +$0.89 ROI with horses at a route this year.
Other contenders: 1,3,7,8,10
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) James W. Murphy Stakes
#9 Monday Morning QB (8/1) – Nothing would surprise the Conductor in this race, but he would love anything close to 8/1 on this colt. 2nd off the layoff, he’s steadily progressing and has yet to run a bad race. If he can translate his dirt form to turf he will have a major chance.
Other Contenders: 7,10,12,13 / ALL
Race 10: 1 1/8 Mile. F.G2 George E. Mitchell Black-Eyed Susan Stakes
#3 So Darn Hot (6/1) – The Conductor was very impressed by this filly’s maiden breaker in June. She ran a decent comeback race in the slop with a wide trip last time and the Conductor sees her sitting on a big one today.
Other Contender: #5 Bonny South (7/5)
Race 11: 1 3/16 Mile. G1 Preakness Stakes
Other Contenders: 9,10
