Force Feed Friday at Santa Anita: The Conductor Needs to Fix the Train

One 3/1 winner and three 2nds yesterday is not what the Conductor ordered. This week has been brutal, and us passengers won’t even be able to play the weekend without a big day today.  The Conductor even laid off the stew last night to keep his mind right, and his capping tight.  Santa Anita doesn’t stand a chance, Let’s Ride.
