A few decent opinions yesterday started the train slowly moving in the right direction. On America’s birthday what better way to fire away at the ponies, drink stews and exploit your friend’s private beach? As George Washington once said, “No taxation without representation and the Conductor never loses on Thursdays.” Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 50000n3L
#6 Carot (9/2) -She offers value and the Conductor likes the way Dylan Davis has been riding on the turf.
Race 2: 1 1/6 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 80k
#3 Ownitifyouwantit (5/1) – He’s run well on dirt and bred to be much better on the lawn.
Race 3: 1 Mile. Clm 10000
#3 Big Muddy (5/1) – 1st off the claim and 2nd off the layoff, his good race can beat the odds-on favorite.
Race 4: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) OC 62500n2x
#3 Greek Alphabet (7/2) – He looks to get a favorable trip up close or on a slow pace.
Race 5: 5½ Furlongs. Mdn 80k
#3 Extreme Force (7/2) – His sire, Constitution, is winning at a ridiculous 57% clip with 1st time starters.
Race 6: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) F.MC 40000
*Never a Doubt Independence Day Lock #3 Ghosting (5/1) – 1st off the claim for Servis, she adds blinkers today an Irad hops aboard.
Race 7: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) S.Alw 66000n2x
#1 El Hermano (8/1) – Drawn well to the inside, the Conductor will back Mott runners going long on the grass every day.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) 100K Manila S
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Current (8/1) – He’s had no pace to run at in his last two starts and has run some thunderous late pace figures. He’s very dangerous.
#7 Win Win Win (7/2) – After playing him in the Preakness and Derby, the Conductor has to use him cutting back in distance and making his 1st start on grass.
Race 9: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.MC 40000
#2 Peggy Sue (2/1) – She’ll graduate today.
