The Conductor chirped Gulfstream Park after he had a 7/1 winner in the 4th race yesterday and then the pony gods turned on him the rest of the day.

The Conductor knows better than that, he’s dealt with the gods thousands of times, they do not look kindly upon arrogance. Hopefully they have granted him forgiveness and we start today with a clean slate. The Conductor is seeing winners today jump off the page, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) OC 25000n1x
#6 Singanothersong (7/2) – This old man is nails, he wins on turf and dirt and has legit speed. Father time will get him eventually, but today is not the day.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 12500n3L
*Double Barrel Shotgun Shells of the Day #8 Memorize (10/1) – She’s stepping up in class but ran the highest last number in the field. You don’t get big prices in that scenario very often.
#7 Nothins Free (8/1) – She improved 1st off the claim last start setting a hot pace and finishing 3rd vs tougher. She’ll appreciate shortening a furlong as well.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. Clm 6250n3L
#5 Shim (2/1) – It looks like he’s going to win on paper and the Conductor laughed at his name.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. OClm 50000
#6 Musical Heart (7/2) – He’s steadily improving and in the best form, what’s not to like?
Race 5: 7 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.MC 20000
#2 Miss Accuse (9/2) – It’s tough to like anyone in this field. She’s working well, and I guess is the one the Conductor likes best.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. S.OC 125000n1x
*Never a Doubt Christmas Shopping Refund Lock of the Day #6 Vincero (3/1) – 1st off the claim for Navarro and he’s already in the best form in the field. Are you poor from Christmas shopping? The Conductor demands you to put the rest of your life worth on this pony and recoup your losses. You owe it to yourself.
Race 7: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) S.MC 50000
#8 Elusive Ro (10/1) – Well bet on debut, he showed good early speed and finished 3rd on dirt. The Conductor loves that Saez hops in the irons.
Race 8: 1 Mile. F.OC 625000n2x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Heaven’s Humor (8/1) – She’s 2/2 in her career and is stretching out for the first time. The Conductor loves that she’s shown versatility in her two wins and most of this group is trying to find its form.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) OClm 50000
#2 First and Three (6/1) – Untested on turf, he’s won two of his 1st three starts on dirt with above par figures for this level. If he can transfer his form to the turf, he’ll win.
Race 10: 6 ½ Furlongs. MC 16000
#6 Maximum (5/1) – A 1st time starter for top connections, he doesn’t have to beat much today.
