Thursday’s Throat Shots at Santa Anita

No time for the Conductor to rest on his laurels, he took the train cross country to take on Santa Anita today.  Let’s see if California can put up a better fight against the Conductor than Florida did.  More likely another track gets its Adams Apple busted, let’s ride.

Race 1: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 20000

#6 Believe Indeed (5/1) – She gets back to the turf today and the Ragin Cajun back in the saddle.  She’s a proven turf winner and the classiest of this bunch.  If she goes off at 5/1 the other mouth breathing cappers just aren’t paying attention.

Race 2: 1 Mile. Mdn 50k

#1 Pitino (5/2) – This 950k purchase will appreciate the added distance.  This colt has been a little ouchy but has more talent in her left hoof than the rest of this field combined.  He’ll win for fun.

Race 3: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 50k

#3 Mucho Unusual (6/5) – The Conductor hates chalk, but he’ll take a free square when he has to.  Prat on the best horse is usually free money in Southern California.

Race 4: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 12500n2L

*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Complete Discreet (20/1) – Speed and fate on a tiring track last time out at Los Al, this filly is on the improve and has a number that is competitive against this bunch.  There are some questionable class droppers in here, so the Conductor will take a shot.

Race 5: 6 Furlongs. F.MC 30000

#8 Divine Dharma (4/1) – Moved into John Sadler’s barn after hopping at the start in her debut in a stakes race at Emerald Downs.  She’s been working well, and Tyler Baze hops aboard, which is a positive sign.

Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. OC 62500n2x

*Stone Cold Lock of the Day #6 Ike Walker (5/2) – He’s a hard knocker, proven winner and drops out of a stakes race where he pressed a hot pace.  Facing inferior today he draws well to the outside and the Conductor feels comfortable putting his life in his hands.

Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) Alw 50000s

#5 Worthy Turk (7/2) – The jockey/trainer combo of Figueroa/Miller are read hot and they have the best horse.  This lightly raced gelding is improving with every start and has the strongest finish in this field.

Race 8: 7 Furlongs. MC 20000

#6 Thefourfortyfourth (5/1) – Cutting back in distance, dropping in class and a bullet work entering today, there is a lot to like with this gelding.  The Conductor is salivating at 5/1.

*Bonus Gullet Slit #1 Smokin B (12/1) – Well bet in his debut, he attended a quick pace 4wide, then faded down the stretch.  He drops in class today and Baze stays aboard, which is a good sign.  The Conductor can smell a big race from him.
