Whitney Stakes Day is the best card of the meet so far. Prepare and conquer. Let’s Ride
Race 3: Race 3: 6 Furlongs. Alw 103000n1x
#1 Life Changer (6/1) – This colt showed talent winning on debut last summer and pressed a wicked pace off a year layoff last time out. Shortening in distance today, he has the early pace figures to clear this field from the rail and can take a big step forward. He won’t change your life, but he can make your day.
Race 6: Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) LureL120K
#9 South Bend (12/1) – Exiting tougher on dirt, this colt has gotten some tough trips in his last few raes. He can run just fine on turf and Rosario fits his running style nicely. The Ductor thinks he can surprise this group.
Race 7: 1½ Mile. (Inner Turf) F.G2 Glens Falls Stakes
#3 War Like Goddess (8/5) – This filly has a thunderous late kick and she will get pace to run at in this one. The Ductor can’t find any alternatives.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. F.G1 Longines Test Stakes
#2 Souper Sensational (6/1) – With a clean trip last time she showed what she can do sprinting and she’s working even better entering today. She has as good a chance as any in here and she’ll be a fair number.
Race 9: 1 3/16 Mile. (Turf) G1 Saratoga Derby Invitational Stakes
#7 Secret Protector (6/1) – A European will win this race, that the Conductor knows. Which one? He doesn’t have a strong opinion but he will put this colt on top. Appleby runners fire consistently in their first start in the states and this colt has yet to run a bad race.
Race 10: 1 1/8 Mile. G1 Whitney Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Swiss Skydiver (6/1) – This is quite the race even with a small field and the Ductor is going for the latch. She ran a dud last time, but had a foot issue, so the Ductor will excuse her one more time. Her race in the Preakness last year can win this race and one of her best races was in the Alabama over this track. The Ductor still thinks this mare is a freak and will take a swing that she upsets the boys again today.
