A 3/1 and 5/2 winner in 10 races isn’t what the Conductor ordered yesterday. However, when his gullet shot gets bet down from 12/1 and 5/2 and wins, he at least knows his passengers are in their seats. The train will stay in Philly today because it’s the Conductor’s only option. Time to dig, Let’s Ride.
Post Time 12:25pm ET Race 1: 1 1/8 Miles. Clm 75000n2L
#7 Champagne Event (3/1) – He’s lightly raced compared to the rest of this group and ran a decent 4th off a long layoff last start. He’ll step forward off of that effort and that will beat this group.
Race 2: 5 ½ Furlongs. Clm 5000n1x
#2 Jack O Liam (10/1) – This old man hasn’t won in a long time, but he ran a decent figure last start against much tougher competition, finishing 5th. The drop in class will be a huge help and the Conductor will key him in the exacta at a nice number.
Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. Clm 10000
#7 Undeniable Temper (5/1) – This group has been running similar numbers, but this gelding has been facing tougher. The Conductor will be very angry if he loses.
Race 4: 7 Furlongs. F.Clm 75000n1x
*Never a Doubt Lunch Money Lock of the Day #3 Hide a Rose (2/1) – This mare is a hard knocker and just missed at this level last start. A repeat effort will likely beat this group.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. MC 40000
#3 Vixsinsfantastkfox (4/1) – Dropping to the claiming ranks for the first time, his race two starts back beats this field.
Race 6: 5 ½ Furlongs. Clm 75000n3L
*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Drive On (6/1) – This gelding looks to be rounding into form in his last two starts and has past performances that would win at this level.
Race 7: 7 Furlongs. F.Alw 41000n2x
#2 Pistol Andie (7/2) – She’s been the most consistent runner in the field as of late and the others will have to improve to beat her today.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. Clm 12500
#7 Ruble (20/1) – The morning line maker is disrespecting this grandpa, who is still consistently running competitive figures at this level. The Conductor will take a swing with this 9-year-old.
Race 9: 7 Furlongs. OC 25000n2x
#4 Inky Dinky Do (15/1) – His win last start gives him every chance, the Conductor dares Parx to give him 15/1.
Race 10: 6 Furlongs. F.MC 10000
#1 Jerseymooseisloose (6/1) – She’s got early speed and is steadily improving. There’s not much else to like in this field.
