The Conductor started this week like he did last week, getting his teeth kicked in at Parx. However, he made tenfold as the week continued so we can’t be worried. I have all the confidence in the world that he will get the train back on track today. He’s shortening up and focusing on the back half of the card with all his Breeders Cup work that needs to be done. Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 1m70yds. Clm 12500
#9 To the Victor (10/1) – This gelding’s last few starts haven’t been enticing, but they’ve been against much stronger competition. In his last start at this level, he ran a figure above par and won with ease. This isn’t a very strong field and he has the potential to make noise at a big price.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. Clm 16000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #11 Doddsprivatelabel (15/1) – The #1A Hey Jabber Jaw (8/5) will likely win this race, but the Conductor likes to give his passengers ponies a little less obvious. This Ol’ Boy is a proven winner and will be flying late. The Conductor loves the cutback to a sprint and he can spice up the exotics.
Race 9: 5 ½ Furlongs. Alw 46000n1x
*Never a Doubt New Car Tuesday Lock of the day #9 Roll Tide Roll (3/1) – A winner at Saratoga two starts back, he like to win anytime and anywhere. His best speed figs are the best in this group, he’s in good form and the favorite in here has much less experience.
Race 10: 6 ½ Furlongs. Clm 5000n1y
#8 Refuseing (4/1) – The only horse in this field that can challenge the heavy favorite, his last race at Delaware Park was very strong. He’s won two in a row and the Conductor thinks he’s capable of legging out a triple.
