Force Feed Friday: The Conductor’s Plays at Saratoga

The Conductor got off to a great start at Saratoga before mother nature ended his fun like the cruel witch she can be. Races 6 and 8 are on the turf today while 2,3 and 10 are off. Let’s pick up where we left off, Let’s Ride.

Race 1: 7 Furlongs. F.MC 50000

#5 G. T. Sonia (10/1) – The heavy favorite #3 Countenance (3/5) is the one to beat, but this is the price the Conductor likes most. She’s run the fastest figures of the rest of the group and gets red-hot Alvarado in the irons.

Race 2: 1 1/16 Mile. (OFF Turf) S.Mdn 78k

#8 Assault Breaker (5/2) – He looks like the clear one to beat on the dirt after scratches.

Race 3: 5 ½ Furlongs. (OFF Turf) Alw 92000n1x

#7 Bernin’ Thru Gold (5/2) – He pressed a hot pace last start and still held on for 3rd. The Conductor sees him taking a step forward.

Race 4: 1 1/8 Mile. F.OC 625003x

#2 Viva Forever (6/1) – This mare ran a clunker last time, but if you toss that race out, she looks to have as good a chance as any in here.

Race 5: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 12500

#8 Ivy’s College Fund (8/1) – 3rd off the layoff, she’s trending in the right direction and the Conductor sees her taking another step forward today. The Conductor’s kids better get scholarships.

Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 90k

#7 Ocean Fire (4/1) – Making her 2nd carreer start, she ran a good 3rd in her debut. Mott runners always improve with a race under their belt.

Race 7: 7 Furlongs. F.Alw 60000n1x

#6 Slimey (6/1) – Stepping up in class after a good win at Saratoga only 9 days ago. The Conductor loves her steady progression.

Race 8: 5 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) S.OC 40000n2x

*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Colonel Tom (8/1) – 2nd off the layoff, he drops back into state-bred company and has the fastest early pace figures in the field. He’ll be a big price because jockey Dylan Davis has yet to find the winners circle this meet.

Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. Curlin Stakes 100k

*Never a Doubt Friday Night Bottle Service Lock of the Day #1 Intrepid Heart (7/2) – He was too far back behind a slow pace in the Belmont and was the wise guy horse that day. With major class relief here, the Conductor thinks there is still talent under the hood.

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

#2 Talespin (12/1) – 2nd off the layoff, he showed good early speed and ran a good 3rd behind a next out winner last time.
