Not a great start to the Saratoga meet, but the Guillo 1st time starter in race 5 kept us afloat. Off the turf again today except for races 3 and 9. Time to hop back in the saddle, Let’s Ride.


Race 1 1 1/8 Mile. MC 20000

#3 Derby Memories (6/1) – 2nd off the long layoff, he’s lightly raced, drops in class and returns to dirt where he showed speed in his debut. He also posted a nice work leading into today.

Race 2: 1 1/8 Mile. (OFF Turf) S.Mdn 78k

#13 Daddy Knows (1/1) – The lone MTO runner for Linda Rice, he looks tough to beat.

Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 62500n2x

#5 Ferdinanda (7/2) – She looks to get a perfect stalking trip sitting behind a hot pace. The Conductor’s only concern is her affinity to run 2nd. He’ll key her in the exacta.

Race 4: 7 Furlongs. Clm 12500

#3 Soul P Say (7/2) – Cutting back to a sprint should hit him right between the eyes.

Race 5: 5 ½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 90k

#4 Lotta Ott (3/1) – Well-bred, she has a very nice work tab at Keeneland. Her sire wins at a 38% clip with 1st time starters.

Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (OFF Turf) Clm 50000

#2 Heavy Roller (10/1) – This gelding drops in for a tag and has very strong performances on good sloppy dirt tracks.

Race 7: 5 ½ Furlongs. (OFF Turf) F.S.Alw 80000n1x

#9 Filly Dilly (4/1) – Her debut got taken off the turf as well and she slaughtered the field.

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

*Never a Doubt Friday Night Bottle Service Best Bet of the Day #2 Dreamzapper (3/1) – Dropping out of open company and shipping in from Churchill, he looks primed for a big effort.


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

#3 Hembree (8/1) – 2nd off the layoff, he ran a thunderous late pace figure in the Poker, closing into a slow pace. He’s a G2 winner and always runs well at this distance.

*Gullet Shot of the Day #8 Quarbaan (6/1) – He’s the one the Conductor likes most in here. Dropping out of G1 company and shortening back in distance, the Conductor is salivating at that price.

Race 10: 5 ½ Furlongs. (OFF Turf) F.S.MC 40000

#2 Fight Night (9/2) – Making her 2nd start of the year, she has good early speed and is cutting back in distance.
