The Conductor still has no feel for Saratoga, but he still has some money to play with today! With the extreme heat forecast for this weekend and Saturday racing canceled, it is imperative for the Conductor to score today. Now that we got away with chasing, time to press! Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 7 Furlongs. S.MC 25000
#7 Therisastormbrewin (8/1) – Dropping in class, 1st time gelding and adding blinkers, the ultimate equipment change is always dangerous.
Race 2: 7 Furlongs. F.Clm 25000
#5 Queen Kahen (6/1) – She’s working well 2nd off the claim for Linda Rice. Linda is 22% with a +$0.17 ROI switching horses from turf to dirt this year.
Race 3: 5 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.S.Mdn 78k
#1 Dearly Declared (4/1) – 2nd off the layoff, she’s shown some very quick early pace figures and will appreciate the shorter distance. With the poor rail draw the Conductor sees her price floating up.
Race 4: 7 Furlongs. Clm 20000
#5 Getoffmyback (5/1) – 2nd off the layoff and shipping in from Churchill, he looks to get a perfect trip on or near a slow pace.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 90k
#7 Mrs. Danvers (7/2) – This filly is working well by all counts and Rosario hops aboard.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Alw 50000s
#2 Willing to Speed (6/1) – He’s the best turf horse of the bunch in the Conductor’s eyes. However, he does have a case of 2nditus. The Conductor thinks the switch to Irad will get him over the hump.
Race 7: 1 3/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) OC 62500n2x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Midnight Tea Time (10/1) – 2nd off the layoff, his last two races have been rained off the turf. He gets back to his preferred surface today and is a very consistent runner. The Conductor will key him in the exacta and trifecta.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. OC 80000n3x
#4 Honorable Treasure (12/1) – 2nd off the layoff, he won nicely last start in his return to the races. His figures fit, and he looks to get a nice setup with a hot pace to run at today.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.G3 Lake George Stakes
#7 Blowout (2/1) – 4 horse field with 3 Chad Brown runners? What a joke of a betting race.
Race 10: 1 1/8 Mile. MC 40000
*Never a Doubt Friday Stew Best Bet of the Day #1 Goose Drank Wine (8/1) – Working well 3rd off the layoff, he has the best late pace figures in the field. The added distance will suit him nicely.
