The Conductor’s play of the day yesterday came back a nice 25/1 for an ice cold double at Saratoga (Suck It). He then couldn’t hit the broad side of the barn at Del Mar, but the Conductor will take it. He likes a bunch of nice prices on today’s Saratoga card, let’s get the train into 2nd gear. Let’s Ride.

Race 1: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 75k

#2 Get Smokin (8/1) – Whenever Castellano hops aboard a debut runner for a low % barn, the horses tend to outrun their odds. The Conductor will key him in the exacta and trifecta.

#3 Frosted Rose (6/1) – She was well bet in her debut and showed a strong finish despite a troubled trip. She adds blinkers today and Rosario hops aboard.

Race 2: 6 Furlongs. F.Alw 25000s

#4 Lady’s Island (3/5) – The Conductor can’t see her losing.

Race 3: 5½ Furlongs. MC 50000

#9 Feeling It (8/1) – The Conductor has a feeling that Kentucky Shippers will continue to run well on the dirt, even from Ellis Park.

Race 4: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.S. MC 40000

#1 Ideational (5/2) – Chad Brown.

Race 5: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Clm 30000n2L

#12 Avocado Toast (8/1) – 2nd off the layoff, she pressed a hot pace and was just nailed at the wire vs similar in her comeback race. She is quick enough early to be in a good spot going into the turn.

Race 6: 1 1/8 Mile. Clm 16000n2L

#3 Gray Nile (2/1) – The Conductor doesn’t know why he was so bad last time, but if that race didn’t exist, he’d be 3/5 in here. The big class drop and switch to Saez will wake him up.

Race 7: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.S.OC 40000n2x

#3 Broken Border (3/1) – She’s exiting a nice victory and is now 3rd off the layoff. Trainer Jason Servis is 12/25 with a +$2.37 ROI with horses moving from two sprints to a route this year.

Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 62500n2x

*Never a Doubt Chad Brown Leg Lock of the Day #5 My Sister Nat (6/5) – 2nd time in the US, she’s the class of the field.


Race 9: 1 ¾ Mile. Birdstone Stakes 100k

*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Third Day (8/1) – Dropping out of graded stakes company at Saratoga and switching back to dirt where he’s run his best, his late pace figures suggest the added distance will suit him well.


Race 10: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) S.Mdn 78k

#6 Zechariah (12/1) – Coming in off the layoff after being clipped, he’s taken money in each start and has shown ability. Graham Motion brings geldings back ready to run.
