Normally the Conductor keeps the train in the station on Mondays, but the weather at Gulftstream scratched most of his horses yesterday. Two days in a row without action? The Conductor will never allow it. Down to Philly we go, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1m70yds. F.MC 10000
*Never a Doubt Workweek Starter Lock of the Day #9 Secret Quality (7/2) – She’s been facing much tougher company in New York and has multiple races that would beat this group. Easy start.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. MC 20000
#8 Brazen Prince (8/5) – He looks tough to beat at a short number.
Race 3: 1 Mile. F.Clm 40000n2L
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Shanghai Tootsie (10/1) – She’s gotten a sloppy track in her last two starts and will appreciate getting back to firm dirt today. Her races in California in August giver her every chance against this group and the Conductor loves the aggressive move 1st off the claim for trainer Michael Pino.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 45k
#1 Risaalaat (9/5) – The Conductor is betting a Michael Pino ice cold double.
Race 5: 6 ½ Furlongs. S.Mdn 37k
#1 Vixsinfantastkfox (8/1) – This colt is steadily progressing, and he ran the best last race in the field on the Conductor’s numbers. We need the rail to be good today.
Race 6: 1m70yds. Clm 8000
#9 Worth His Salt (7/2) – His last start was better than it looks on paper, pressing a hot pace and finishing 5th. He’ll be facing significantly weaker today and has past figures that would hammer this field.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. Clm 10000
#4 Don’t Make it Easy (20/1) – He finished 4th behind the most likely winner in here #6 He’s Cotton. He’s got early speed and has as good a chance as any if the favorite stubs his toe.
Race 8: 1 Mile. F.Clm 16000
#6 Gobi (3/1) – Just missing at this level last start, she’s consistently run the best figures in the field. The Conductor will drop the hammer if she goes off at 3/1.
Race 9: 1 Mile. Clm 7500n2L
#8 Vinnyvinvincent (10/1) – He’s dropping in class and this will be his first try routing. His even running style makes the Conductor believe he’ll love the added distance and the Conductor will key him in the trifecta.
