What a weekend at Gulfstrem Park. The rain was a major buzz kill on Saturday and pretty much threw all the Conductor’s pre-work out the window, but that’s how the chips fall sometimes. The Conductor was scramblin and gamblin all day, but we managed to survive the weekend, play some golf, and drink many, many stews. The Conductor is a very tired man on this Monday, and I thought he would keep the train in the station. Obviously, I was wrong, and the Conductor is right back to work like the leader that he is. “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.” The Conductor wants to play Fairgrounds, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 Mile. S.Clm 12500n4L
#4 Fire Lake (7/2) – He should go right to the front and make the rest pass him.
Race 2: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 150002nL
#3 Brenda’s Fever (9/2) – She’s taking a big drop in class and ran better than it looks last start moving early into a hot pace. The Conductor would love 9/2.
Race 3: 1m70yds. Clm 30000b
#5 Got Gold (7/2) – This colt shortens a 1/16 mile and has a pace advantage over this group. Getting an uncontested lead will make him very dangerous.
Race 4: 1 Mile. (Turf) MC 30000
#6 Maglio (6/1) – Trainer Brad Cox is 24% with a +$0.42 ROI debuting maiden claimers this year. The runners with experience in here aren’t much.
*Update – Wrong Days Race 4 that’s my fault as the scribe
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. S.Clm 5000n2y
*Never a Doubt Work Week Starter Lock of the Day #4 Snapper Bite (8/5) – The others don’t stand a chance.
Race 6: 1 Mile. (Turf) S.Mdn 38k
#12 Typhoon Tycoon (8/1) – He split a 10-horse field at this level and has been clipped since. With solid connections, the Conductor can see this colt taking a big step forward.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.OC 50000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Lunar Orbit (5/1) – She’s dropping in class and her win two starts back was the fastest race in the field on the Conductor’s numbers. 5/1 would be grand larceny.
Race 8: 7 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.MC 30000
#5 Enchanted Emma (9/2) – Same logic as race 4.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. S.Clm 5000n3L
#1 Canjun Carmelized (5/1) – The rail has been great at Fairgrounds this meet and his numbers make him very competitive at this level.
