Force Feed Friday: The Conductor’s Plays at Saratoga

We don’t want to do better, we need to do better. C’mon Conductor! Let’s Ride.

Race 1: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) S.Mdn 78k

#4 Noble Emotion (8/1) – Bred to go long on the grass, trainer Jonathon Thomas is 27% with a +$0.08 ROI with turf runners this year and can win 1st time out. When Castellano rides for him, they’re live.

Race 2: 7 Furlongs. Clm 75000

#4 Olympic Village (4/1) – He showed talent as a two-year old and is making his return to the races today. He’s working well and Castellano hops aboard for another barn he rarely rides for.

Race 3: 1 3/16 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 90k

#6 Shennan (7/2) – Making his 2nd start off a layoff and in the US, he should take a big step forward today. He ran well last time out, closing for 3rd into a slow pace.

Race 4: 5 ½ Furlongs. F.MC 25000

#3 Flattering Eye’s (12/1) – She was just beaten by a favorite last start and shortens in distance today. This race is wide open.

Race 5: 6 Furlongs. OC 62500n2x

*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Cove Blue (8/1) – This colt just missed last time after setting a hot pace going 7 furlongs. He’s working like he’s going to run a career best today over the Saratoga track.

#8 Psalmody (7/5) – Chalk

Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) OC 80000b

#5 Maraud (4/1) – 2nd off the layoff, he had no chance last time trying to close into a tepid pace. He’s a Grade 2 winner and the class of the field.

Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. F.S.OC 25000n1x

*Never a Doubt Friday Night Stew Lock of the Day #5 Ratajkowski (8/5) – She ran very well just getting nailed in her 1st time routing last time. The Conductor sees her graduating today. Her namesake will be cheering her on.

Race 9: 5 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) Skidmore Stakes 100k

#4 River Hawk (20/1) – Shipping in from Laurel and taking a huge step up in class, Jose Ortiz takes the mount for a barn he hasn’t ridden for this year. The Conductor has a feeling this boy is live and is also a big name hunch play for the Conductor.

Race 10: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) S.MC 40000

#8 Blue Parrot (5/1) – 2nd off a layoff, the Conductor thinks she’ll appreciate the added distance after going 5 ½ Furlongs last time.
