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.
