The train is humming after a big weekend with Business model getting home at 11/1 Sunday. Saratoga doesn’t want us to have nice things, so all but two races are off the turf today. Lucky for us, The Conductor has opinions in both. Let’s pick up where we left off Sunday and make NYRA pay. Skip.
Saratoga Race 5: 1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) Alw 50000s
*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Front Man (6/1) – This is a great betting race where you could make a case for many. It’s not a strong allowance field and the Conductor likes this gelding quite a bit at a square price. He won two back at this distance and ran sneaky well last time stepping up in class to this level. He closed best in a merry go round race and galloped out with the leaders. He’ll like stretching back out 1 1/8 mile today and is one of only two runners in the field with a win at the distance.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.S.Suzie O’Cain Stakes
#3 Im Just Kiddin (8/1) – This filly is clearly tough to ride. She’s had terrible trips in her last 4 starts. The Conductor played her last time when she finally got a rider switch and she received another no chance trip from the 9 post. She was 3-wide on the 1st turn and 4-wide + uncovered on the 2nd turn. Im Just Kidden draws well today and the Conductor thinks Saez will give her a desperately needed fair chance. She has talent and can upset this field at a juicy number.
#7 Orange Freeze (5/1) – The Conductor thinks this this filly is the most likely winner. This morning line seems high, but a boy can dream. She continues to impress Mr. Ductor with powerful wide moves on the turn. She improves with each start and gets a rider upgrade to Prat today. There is nothing not to like.
