#2 Promise Me Roses (8/1) – You passengers don’t want roses, you just want the cash.

Race 2: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 32000

#6 Shimmering Moon (7/2) – 2nd off the layoff today, she made an early move into a hot pace last start. She’ll be ready to roll here.

Race 3: 7 Furlongs. S.Bertram F. Bongard Stakes 150k

#2 Cleaon Jones (9/2) – He’s the best closer in the race and he should get a perfect trip with a hot pace to run at. The Conductor will key him in the exacta.

Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) OC 622500n2x

#11 Aquaphobia (6/1) – 3rd off the layoff, he ran a strong late pace figure closing into a slow pace last time. With plenty of speed in this one, he should have every opportunity.

Race 6: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 75k

Race 7: 1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) OC 100000

*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Devamani (9/2) – He got absolutely no pace to run at last time and has the best last kick in this group. He also gets back to his favorite distance today. The Conductor will hammer him at that morning line.

Underneath Uppercut #4 Imperio D (15/1) – This colt showed good early speed in his debut in a race taken off the turf. The Conductor sees him taking a big step forward on the lawn, where Rudy Rod wanted him to start. He will key him in the exacta and tri.

#2 Vip Nation (4/1) – 2nd off the layoff, she’s taking a big drop in class and should get a good trip on or near a moderate pace. The Conductor is against the odds on favorite #3 Bareeqa (3/5), who is 0/10 at Belmont.

Race 2: 1 Mile. Mdn 75k

Wind Pipe Whack Wednesday: The Conductor’s Spot Plays at Belmont Park

It’s the start of the racing week and more much more importantly September 11th. The fact that it was 18 years ago blows the Conductor’s mind. Everyone remembers where they were that day, when innocent people lost their lives in the shocking attack. Thoughts and Prayers to all the families and friends who lost loved ones, they will never be forgotten.

Today is a reminder that you can’t take a day for granted in this life and you need to conduct a life the way you see fit. We have the freedom to make our own choices in this country and that’s unfortunately not a liberty everyone else has. The Conductor chooses to cash some tickets today and he’s thankful for the opportunity. Let’s Ride.
