Its a muddy Wednesday in New York and the Conductor will pick his spots carefully. There is nothing more dangerous than the Ductor in the slop.
Race 2: 6½ Furlongs. MC 20000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Brockthebank (8/1) – He’s been away for the races for a long time, but is in the hands of strong connections. He showed ability in his debut and has been heavily bet in each of his starts. At that price he offers value.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. Mdn 75k
#2 Manolito (30/1) – The Conductor really likes this colts work pattern leading into today and trainer Alejandro Maymo is 2/7 with a +$6.49 ROI debuting runners at this level.
#10 Liam’s Fire (12/1) – This colt has a strong work tab as well and the Conductor is very intrigued that Johnny V takes the mount for Contessa instead of either of the Pletcher runners.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.S.Alw 66000n1x
#6 Moon Heist (15/1) – This filly has an early pace edge over this group and may be able to steal this thing on the front end. She’ll be a big number.
#5 Funderella (15/1) – 3rd off the layoff and dropping in class, she showed speed vs tougher last time and this group is very weak.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. Alw 50000s
*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Shock Therapy (9/2) – 2nd off the layoff, this gelding ran a good 3rd last start closing into a slow pace. With a fairer setup today, he’s the Conductor’s best bet.
Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) MC 40000
#7 Cobble Hill (12/1) – He didn’t run a step last time, but the Conductor will ignore it at this price. He showed ability prior, is dropping in class and Bruce Brown is 5/15 with a +$14.03 ROI running horses for the 2nd time this year.
Race 4: 6 ½ Furlongs. Clm 14000n3L
#7 Remstin (8/1) – Dropping in class, his last race on turf came back very fast for the level. Returning to dirt where he won his last race, he’s very dangerous.

Race 6: 7 Furlongs. F.Alw 35000s

Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Clm 30000n2L

Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. (Inner Turf) F.MC 50000
#7 I Am Aine (8/1) – She ran decent in her debut in a race taken off the turf. She gets to the surface she’s bred for today and Michelle Nevin runners always improve in their second starts.
Other Contenders: 3,5,8,10
Race 6: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) F.Mdn 75k
#4 So Gracious (6/1) – The Conductor likes her cutting back to a sprint.

Update: looks like its chalk city in New York
Race 1: 1 1/16 Mile. MC 30000

*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Elektronic (5/1) – This colt pressed a hot pace last start and tired late. He’s been up against disadvantageous pace scenarios in his last few starts and the Conductor loves him here.
Race 7: 6½ Furlongs. OC 62500n2x
#2 Fuel the Bern (9/5) – 3rd off the layoff, he’s run against tougher fields in her last two starts. He should be in a perfect spot here, sitting right behind dueling frontrunners.

#2 Fusi (5/2) – The Conducroe doesn’t have a strong opinion in here.
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Evan’s Nice Now (6/1) – This filly is dropping in class and has an early pace edge over this group. Gate to wire.
Race 3: 1 ¼ Mile. (Turf) OC 62500n2x

Race 4: 1 Mile. (Turf) S.OC 40000n2x
#8 Ides of March (15/1) – This gelding ran a strong late pace figure behind a slow pace last time. Making his 4th start of the form cycle, he shortens back to his best distance and can hit the board at a big number.
Race 5: 6½ Furlongs. F.S.MC 50000
#4 Broadway Angel (7/2) – You can’t like anyone with experience in here. This filly will be ready to run.

Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) G2 Hill Prince Stakes
#9 Uncle Benny (10/1) – This colt returned to form last start and will be stretching out to this distance for the first time. He’s very talented, this isn’t the strongest group and Servis runners never have a problem going further.
*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Cross Border (20/1) – Winner of three in a row and stepping up to the Grade 1 ranks, this is not the strongest G1 field. He’ll be the biggest price on the board and the Conductor will key him in the exacta and tri.
Race 10: 1 Mile. G1 Champagne Stakes
#6 Big City Bob (20/1) – This colt is the only one in the field that has won routing. He’ll have a hot pace to close into and will be finishing late. The Conductor will key him to hit the board.
The Conductor’s got a nice feel for Belmont right now. Big Sandy better protect itself or it could get ugly. Very ugly.
Race 1: 6 ½ Furlongs. MC 20000
#4 Cavaradossi (7/2) – The Conductor doesn’t have a strong opinion here.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) F.S.Mdn 62k

#2 Street Trust (5/2) – Chalk
Race 4: 6 ½ Furlongs. Clm 12500

#4 Katama Moonlight (7/5) – She looks like a cinch.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) S.Mdn 62k

Race 2: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) F.S.Mdn 62k
#5 Canarsie Angel (6/1) – Switching back to turf, her debut on the lawn was better than it looks, closing into a slow pace in a race that has comeback live. The Conductor will key her in the exacta and tri.
Race 3: 1 Mile. Clm 40000n2L
#6 Jerome Avenue (4/1) – #4 Always Forgiven (5/2) is the one to beat, but the Conductor likes this gelding as well. Cutting back to a mile, he stayed on while pressing a hot pace going longer last time.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) F.Clm 30000n2L
#5 Noble Jewel (9/2) – The Conductor likes this filly cutting back to a sprint.
Race 5: 6½ Furlongs. F.S.C 25000
#1 Gray Witch (5/2) – Castellano takes the mount for Brad Cox and there is not much to like from the runners with experience. The Conductor is a little intrigued with #3 Our Craftys Legacy (30/1) on the class plunge.
Race 6: 7 Furlongs. (Turf) F.S.Alw 66000n1x
*Underneath Uppercut #9 Alvernia (20/1) – She improved mightily in her 1st time on grass last time. The winner of that race, O’Malley, just came back to win for the Conductor yesterday. She’s the Conductor’s key in the exacta and tri.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. OC 100000b
#1 American Tattoo (6/1) – He’s had some time off and is working well since his dud last time. His win two back and Argentinian form show the Conductor he has talent and the ability to rebound.
Race 8: 6½ Furlongs. S.MC 50000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Macho Boy (10/1) – He’s run well vs tougher and was under pressure on a hot pace last time. He also gets a weight break today.
