#7 Pillar Mountain (10/1) – #10 Arklow (5/2) is the one to beat, but the Condctor is going to take a shot with this colt in an open race. The Conductor loved his steady progression leading up to G1 Sword Dancer, where he was too far back ran ok vs much tougher competition. This is a major class drop today.
14% takeout for pick 4’s and full fields at Kentucky Downs makes it impossible for the Conductor to sit on his hands tomorrow. He’d be leaving money on the table! He likes tomorrow’s late pick 4 especially. Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 6½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Mdn 130k
#2 Cairo Express (12/1) – She showed good early speed in her debut on dirt at Saratoga and is bred to step forward on the turf. Trainer Joe Sharp is also 19% with a +$0.83 ROI moving runners to turf for the 1st time this year.
#8 Meritaten (6/1) – This filly was well bet in her debut and ran evenly, chasing 3-wide. The Conductor likes her works exiting that race and sees her taking a big step forward with experience.
#9 Fashion Act (20/1) – Similar angle to the #2. She howed speed on dirt and well bet in her debut and now switching to turf, where she’s bred to prefer.
#11 Lucky Polly (6/1) – Bred well for the turf and top connections and working well.
#12 Fashionably (5/1) – Same as #11
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) OC 62500n2x
#1 Cammack (10/1) – This old man was loaded behind traffic and a slow pace last start. He’s a hard knocker and beat similar two back.
#5 Aquaphobia (7/2) – He’s exiting much tougher races at Saratoga.
#7 Untaimed Domain (12/1) – He clipped heels last time, but his prior form gives him every chance vs this group. The Conductor likes that he returns to the races quickly.
#9 Penalty (5/1) – He beat tougher two starts back at Saratoga at this distance.

*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Mr. Misunderstood (4/1) – 3rd off the layoff, 4/4 at the distance and a G2 stakes winner, he’s the Conductor’s key to the sequence.
#6 Get Western (15/1) – The Conductor will play a lone backup ticket with this longshot. He is exiting a wire to wire victory and there is not a lot of pace signed on in this one.
