Force Feed Friday: The Conductor’s Must Win to Survive Plays at Gulfstream Park

The Conductor does not want to play the ponies today.  He wants to suck his thumb and scream at the replay of the Tennessee “foul” at the end of the game.  But, he is the Conductor.  This is the cross he bears.  He must get back on the horse not only for himself, but for his loyal passengers.  This is the life he chose.

Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 8500b

*Never a Doubt Humpday Lock #2 Ocean Dream (2/1) – She has a thunderous late kick and will get pace to run at.

Race 1: 5 ½ Furlongs. F.OC 7500

#2 Ryderroo (12/1) – She made up lots of ground in the stretch last start, in a race that came back very fast on the Conductor’s numbers.  That’s good enough for him at the price she’ll be.

*Never a Doubt Sunday Night Scary Preventer But Not Really They Can’t Be Prevented Tonight Lock of the Day #3 Racing Raven (4/5) – Cutting back to a sprint, he has to beat this horrendous field.

Image result for hiding under covers gif

Race 2: 6½ Furlongs. Clm 40000b

#3 Bootlegger (4/1) – 3rd off the layoff and dropping in class, he looks to be a new animal this year.  His last two races give him every chance.

Race 3: 5½ Furlongs. S.Mdn 60k

#1 Holey Matrimony (9/2) – Debuting for a hot barn, this colt is well bred and working well.

Race 4: 6 Furlongs. F.MC 20000

#2 Give Me a Hug (3/1) – 2nd off the layoff and cutting back to a sprint this filly has been well bet vs much tougher.  The Conductor needs a big hug after Vegas.

Race 5: 6 Furlongs. F.OClm 75000

#6 Movie Score (5/1) – She was only beaten a length two starts back vs similar with a solid figure and Ryerson is 25% with a +$0.50 ROI this year 1st off the claim.

Race 6: 1 Mile. S.Mdn 60k

#6 Papa Jim (4/1) – 2nd off the layoff and stretching out for the 1st time he ran a very good 3rd last start with a tough trip.

Sunland Park

Race 11: 1 1/8 Mile. G3 Sunland Park Derby

#2 Anotherwistafate (3/1) – #1 Much Gusto (8/5) is clearly the Baffert horse to beat, but he’ll likely go off at 2/5 in here.  This colt shipping in from Golden Gate will likely go off higher than 3/1 and the Conductor will take a swing with him.  He’s won three in a row going away in gate to wire fashion in San Francisco.  For anyone who pays attention to Golden Gate, its impossible to go gate to wire. He has potential.
