Not the quality of racing or field sizes summer racing provided us, but the Conductor will still make us some loot, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 5½ Furlongs. Clm 6250n2x
Top Pick: #5 Kaluhla (2/1) – The Conductor hates favorites as we know but this looks like nothing than a free square. Miles the best current form, best early speed, good outside post, easy winner.
Backup: #1 Atomic Action (3/1) – Has the back class, he is rounding into form.
Race 2: 1 Mile. F.Clm 12500n2L
Top Pick: #6 Topaz Time (5/2) – Drops in class today and should get the easiest of leads in a race devoid of any pace. This sorry bunch will have a tough time passing him.
Backup: #4 Inland Empire (2/1) – Huge class drop with back class and switches back to dirt today. She’s the only other filly with a chance.
Race 3: 5½ Furlongs. F.MC 20000
Top Pick #9 Lucky Stash (4/1) – In her only start, she took money at the windows against much better at Del Mar. The Conductor loves that angle in these maiden claimers, the market knows who has talent.
Backups: 1,3,4,5 – Open maiden race, many with chances
Race 4: 5½ Furlongs. F.Alw 8000s
Top Pick #4 Herunbridledpower (3/1) – This Los Al specialist is a hard knocker, a versatile winner and will likely be the third betting choice with the two Del Mar shippers. This mare will show them what home turf is all about.
Price Pony: #1 Asem (12-1) – Longest shot on the board, lightly raced and improving with good early speed, she could spice things up.
Race 5: 5½ Furlongs. F.MC 20000
Top Pick: #6 Omerta (6-1) – She showed the most talent in this group last year, showing rocket speed against better. She stunk her debut at this level last time, but she was claimed which is a good sign. This field stinks and she has as good of a chance as any.
Backups: #4 What a Flirt (2/1), #6 Grandma Neta (2/1)
Race 6: 1 Mile. EBJohnstnB75K
*Stone Cold Lock of the Day: #3 Edwards Going Left (5/2) – It’s not a question on whether this gelding wins, the questions is by how many. Absolute standout in this one, you don’t need any others.
Race 7: 5½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 40k
#7 Queen of the Track (6-1) – She’s showed good early speed then folded like a deck of cards in her first two starts. She’ll be facing worse today, has been working very well and gets a hot jockey/trainer combo, who are 4/11 with a +$15.40 ROI in the last 60 days. She has every right to improve and the Conductor will take a shot with a price in this open race.
Backups: 1,2,4,10, (12) – Tough maiden race, many with chances
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. F.BJLewisB75K
*Gullet Shot of the Day: #7 Steph Being Steph (5/1) – This filly is steadily improving, and she should step forward in her second start off the layoff. She has faced much better prior and should get a perfect trip from the outside post sitting just off the inside speed. The Conductor will steer the train straight to the windows to hammer this filly.
Bonus Price Pony #6 Priced Perfection (6-1) – She ran much faster early pace figures after adding blinkers in her last start. That win makes her competitive in this field. The Conductor will only use these two in a race where the favorites have question marks.
Race 9: 5½ Furlongs.MC 20000
Top Pick: #7 Agronomo (4/1) – Another open betting Maiden Claimer on this card. This colt’s speed figures fit and he should appreciate his 2nd start with lasix today. He’s the most likely winner.
