This is where we separate the men for the boys, the contenders from pretenders, the conductors from the passengers. Anyone can play the major circuits on weekends with their fancy outfits and stakes races. Only the true grinders show up at the OTB on a Tuesday for Parx. Where the ponies run, the train will follow, Let’s Ride.
Late Pick 4 and Double
Race 5: 6 ½ Furlongs. Clm 7500n4L
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Southerncommission (10/1) – If they give the Conductor 10/1 on this gelding he won’t have enough space on the train for all his loot. Pressing a hot pace and running a solid 3rd against tougher last time, the Conductor sees him as the most likely winner. Speed and the rail have been beneficial at Parx in sprint races this meet, and the favorites have big question marks in here.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F. MC 40000
*Never a Doubt Jet Ski Lock of the Day #6 Agent Ninetynine (4/1) – Top connections and her dam wins at 33% with 1st time starters. The Conductor loves her work pattern and can see her running off the screen.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. Alw 46000n1x
#3 Share the Ride (6/1) – He has the most impressive race in this field two starts back running them off their feet to break his maiden. Last start at this level, he ran a so-so 2nd, losing to a next out winner. He’s working like a rocket and trainer Alan Goldberg has a +$0.15 ROI with horses 45-90 days away. He has the most upside in this field and 6/1 is juicy.
Race 8: 1 Mile. OC 25000n2x
#8 Quality Asset (8/1) – There is a ton of speed in this race and the Conductor will key on a closer who should get a perfect trip. A winner of two in a row by open lengths, this gelding loves Parx and will be revving up while the others are tiring.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. F.MC 10000
#5 Deep Canyon (6/1) – This might be the worst field the Conductor has seen all year on paper. That doesn’t mean he won’t find some value. Well bet in his last start at Penn National he bobbled at the break and lost all chance. He debuted in Southern California, is working well and has solid connections. He is the only one here with positives.
