The Conductor wasn’t right often yesterday, but you don’t need to be when your shoving 30/1 shots down Parx’s gullet hole. The train can’t leave Philly after that bomb landed yesterday.
PT 12:25pm ET Race 1: 1m70yds. Clm 25000n2L
#2 Egyptian Pioneer (5/2) – This colt didn’t like the sloppy track last time and he’s run against much tougher in New York prior. He’s working well with top connections.
Race 2: 5 ½ Furlongs. Clm 5000n2y
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 What the Chubb (10/1) – This boy ran 2nd vs similar last start and is 1st off the claim for trainer Juan Vazquez. He’s got good early speed and has beaten tougher this year.
Race 3: 1m70yds F.Clm 12500
#2 Banana Anna (3/1) – Looks good on paper and the Pennington/Ness jockey/trainer combo is tough to beat at Parx.
Race 4: 1 Mile. Mdn 45k
*Never a Doubt Stocking Stuffer Lock of the Day #8 Mutaraabit (8/5) – The two favorites have this field over a barrel. The Conductor will roll with him.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. Clm 25000b
#3 Klington Warrior (12/1) – This colt has faced much tougher in his young career and has real early gas. He’s been off since July and is working well. If he can return to form after some rest, he’ll beat this group.
Race 6: 5 ½ Furlongs. Clm 7500n2L
#5 Rebel Vow (20/1) – #8 Fot (7/2) is the Conductor’s top pick, but this is the bomb the Conductor will key in the exotics. He has the fastest early pace figures in the field and is dropping in class. He’ll appreciate the shorter distance as well.
Race 7: 6 ½ Furlongs. S.Alw 39000n1x
#6 Pinatubo (7/2) – He has good early speed and will appreciate cutting back to a sprint. He does his best running shorter.
Race 8: 1m70yds. F.Alw 25000s
*Atom Bomb of the Day #10 Pretty Cool Cat (30/1) – This ol’ mare is in good form and her figure two starts back on a fast track gives her every chance in here. She’ll be flying late and the Conductor will key her in the exotics.
Race 9: 7 Furlongs. Clm 12500n3L
#8 Redneck Cowboy (4/1) – 2nd vs similar last race, he loves the Parx surface and you know the Conductor is a fan of the cutback.
