Aqueduct is back and the Conductor needs to buy all you little passengers Christmas gifts. Nothing better than cold hard cash that you can spend in the Conductor’s store! Let’s whack this double, Let’s Ride.
Race 4: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.Clm 16000
#1 Trouble for Skyler (4/1) – She’s been facing much tougher and takes a big drop in class today. Last time she was in for a tag she got the job done.
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Nowitna River (8/1) – Cutting back to a sprint, this filly loves to win which is always dangerous at the claiming ranks. The Conductor has made lots of money on in form Finger Lakes shippers in his life.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. Alw 50000s
#5 Inside Risk (5/2) – 2nd off the layoff and cutting back in distance after pressing a hot pace last time, this 1st time gelding has a chance to run off the screen. He’s been facing miles tougher than this group.
#7 Dubai Bobby (5/1) – His maiden breaker two back on turf was the most impressive race in this field. Switching back to dirt, dropping in class and drawn well to the outside, he must be used.
The Conductor is easing into the racing week and hasn’t played much Gulfsteam lately so he’s narrowing his focus. Aim small, miss small, keep it light and keep it tight. Let’s Ride.
Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 50k
The Pletcher horse #7 Summer to Remember (8/5) is clearly the one to beat with a good 2nd behind a tougher field in his debut. However, the Conductor thinks we can still get a nice little lump of cash out this race keying in on the #6 Beachwalker (15/1). This colt dueled setting a scorching pace before fading last time on a race taken off the turf. He’s bred to take a step forward on the lawn and moves to the grass for the first time today. Johnny V also takes the mount which is a positive sign.
#6 Our Super Nova (6/1) – This filly has an early pace edge in a race filled with closers. The Conductor wants her ridden aggressively and going right to the front. She’ll be tough to pass down the lane.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. Mdn 70k
#2 The Angry Man (12/1) – The Conductor likes this gelding’s work tab and attitude.
Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. F.G2 Demoiselle Stakes
#6 Critical Value (8/1) – Her maiden breaker at Saratoga came back very live and she dominated the competition in her last start. With a natural step forward, she’ll be tough.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. G3 Remsen Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Shotski (15/1) – He ran well stretching out for the first time last out and will get more distance today. The Conductor loves this colt’s progression with each race this race smells like chaos. The Conductor will key him in the trifecta.
Race 10: 1 Mile. G1 Cigar Mile Handicap
#6 Spun to Run (5/2) – He’s posting bullet works entering today and has turned into a different animal this fall. He can take down #5 Maximum Security (3/2).

Race 1: 6 Furlongs. (OFF Turf) F.S.MC 40000
#11 Happy Music (8/1) – 2nd off the layoff this filly drops to the claiming ranks for the firt time and has been well bet vs tougher. She draws in as an MTO.
Race 2: 1 Mile. F.Clm 16000n2L
#2 True Prosperity (6/1) – She had a troubled trip last time and she gets back to a route today where she ran her best two back. She’ll run in the exacta at a nice number.
Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 50000s
#6 Overheated (10/1) – This girl stretches out to a turf route for the first time and this group is very average. Rosario has hit with some big prices riding for Ray Handal recently.

#2 Tan and Tight (6/5) – Keep it tight, keep it light.
Race 5: 7 Furlongs. F.Clm 25000n2L
*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Abraxan (10/1) – She’s dropping to the claiming ranks for the first time and has run on turf and a sloppy track in her last two starts. Her form sprinting on a fast dirt track gives her every chance.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Outer Turf) S.Clm 25000
#9 Whatawonderflworld (9/2) – Dropping to her lowest career class level, she ran very well last time vs tougher and looks to get a good setup today with pace to run at.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 100000b
#3 Chipolata (4/1) – This filly has the back class and figures to beat the favorite #2 Dream Passage (1/1) and will be a much better price. She’s also 1/1 over the Aqueduct surface.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. F.S.MC 40000
#1 Maru (7/2) – She showed speed vs tougher in her debut and hung on for 3rd. She can run this group off their feet.

Race 5: 1 1/8 Mile. (Outer Turf) S.Alw 66000n1x
#2 Southern Brigade (6/1) – He got cooked in a hot pace last time, so the Conductor will forgive him. His best race came at this distance three starts back and he gets a rider upgrade to Rosario today.

*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Overtime Olivia (20/1) – This mare is stepping up in class after a victory. She has strong early pace figures and looks to get a favorable trip in a sprint without much early pace. The Conductor will key her in the exact and trifecta.

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.

The Conductor’s got a nice feel for Belmont right now. Big Sandy better protect itself or it could get ugly. Very ugly.

Race 2: 6 Furlongs. (Inner Turf) F.S.Mdn 62k
