Not a great Thursday for the Conductor, but that’s why there is Friday. This is by far the best betting card at Belmont thus far this week. Don’t think, just keep throwing. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 25000n3L
#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 4: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) F.Alw 77000n1x
#7 Restructure (2/1) – She’s very logical.
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
#3 Comic (4/1) – This filly is posting bullet works and trainer Rodolphe Brisset is 21% with a +$0.54 ROI this year with 2nd time starters. Jose Ortiz stays aboard as well.
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.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) S.Mdn 62k
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.
