We’re back on the turf today. Thank you pony gods. The first Saturday at Saratoga and the Conductor needs to rebound after a poor Thursday. Plenty of full fields and great opportunities today. Let’s make them pay. Skip.

Saratoga Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.Mdn 136.5k

*Gullet Shot of the Day #8 No Deli (10/1) – The Conductor has been waiting to play this filly back since her debut. She missed the break, made a 4-wide uncovered move on the turn from last and never quit. It was a sneaky good effort and she should take a massive step forward today making her 2nd start for the Mott barn. Double digit odds would be a treat.


Race 6: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.S.Alw 95000n1x

#10 Silver Skillet (7/2) – This filly showed that she loves to mow switching to turf for the first time last start. She closed well behind a slow pace and finished best with a huge gallop out. She should appreciate the added ground today, and the Conductor thinks she’s the most talented filly in the field. The only concern is the post and Rosario, but in the 4/1 range the Conductor thinks she’s worth a play. He’ll be leaning on her in a race that many passengers will be spreading in the horizontal wagers.

Race 9: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) G3 Kelso Stakes

#7 Anaconda (6/1) – Annapolis and Casa Creed are formidable favorites, but the Conductor will key around Anaconda in this race. He was impressed with his last effort, when he stepped up in class in the Poker. He was checked hard on backstretch and still finished well on the inside, galloping out in front of the pack. There is a ton of early speed in this race and Anaconda should get an ideal setup. He’ll be flying late in the Saratoga stretch and the Conductor sees his odds drifting up from the 6/1 morning line.
