One lonely short priced winner made it one sad and lonely Friday night for the Conductor. No bottle service for him. Losers let a bad day get to them, and winners get excited the next morning because they know their due. A nice cup of mud for the Conductor in his capping lair this Saturday morning ensures his brain is firing on all cylinders. Glory is right in front of us, let’s take it. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6½ Furlongs. (Turf) S.Mdn 55k
#5 Unbridled Ethos (8/1) – He showed ability in his debut with a big early move and then went to the sidelines. He comes back today working well and he’s bred for the grass. This is a weak group and he’s an unknown with upside.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. MC 75000
#5 High Five (3/1) – This colt bled in his first start and adds Lasix for the first time today. He’s drawn well to the outside and is 1st off the claim for trainer Vladimir Cerin.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 16000n3L
*Never a Doubt Saturday Ski Trip Lock of the Day #7 Come on Cat (9/5) – Dropping in class, switching back to dirt and cutting back in distance with a pace advantage. He’s your early pick 5 single.
Race 4: 6½ Furlongs. (Turf) OC 40000n1x
#1 What’sontheagenda (4/1) – This gelding was just nailed at the wire last start after running ridiculous early pace figures. He’s found his calling down the hill.
Race 5: 5½ Furlongs. MC 30000
#4 Gran Martillo (8/5) – Running 2nd against much tougher last start and behind a next out winner. He’ll beat this group for fun.
Race 6: 6½ Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 55k
#2 Montana Moon (8/1) – He’s run very fast early pace figures going longer, that’s a recipe for success down the hill. The Conductor likes that the Cajun stays in the saddle.
Race 7: 5½ Furlongs. Clm 12500
#3 Market Sentiment (6/1) – Plunging in class, he has good early speed and his figures fit for this level. Above 4/1 is a good price.
Race 8: 1 Mile (Turf) F.G2 Buena Vista Stakes
#9 Vasilika (8/5) – She looks to be a step above this group.
Race 9: 1 Mile. Clm 20000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Clear the Mine (8/1) – He’s dropping in class and possess the highest figures in the field at the mile distance. He should get a perfect trip today, closing into a hot pace.
Race 10: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 40000n1x
#3 Tammy’s Window (10/1) – She’s won at this level before and has a very strong late kick. She looks primed to run her best in her 3rd start off a layoff.
