Hope you passengers fired away on the Derby prep races like the Conductor ordered. Back to full card plays today and back to Oaklawn where the Conductor gets all dirt races and big fields. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 1/16 Mile. F.Clm 16000n2L
#5 Just For Casey (3/1) – In a race devoid of pace, the Conductor sees her taking them all the way around again. Gate to Wire.
Race 2: 5½ Furlongs. F.MC 16000
#7 Princess Z Ohsix (5/2) – 1st off the claim for trainer Kenny Smith and 2nd off the layoff she has good early speed and was only beaten a length vs tougher last time. She’ll win today.
Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. F.Clm 30000n2L
#5 Turkmenistan (9/2) – She’s run back to back closing thirds at this level, but both times she hasn’t had much pace to run at. She’ll get a better setup today.
Race 4: 5½ Furlongs. Clm 8000
#11 We Did (20/1) – His race two starts back makes him very competitive at this level and he loves to win races. The Conductor will key him at a big price in the exacta and trifecta.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. S.Alw 84000n2L
1/1A Entry (3/1) – Both entries have a big chance the Conductor will take the two.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. F.Mdn 83k
#4 Goodbye Earl (9/2) – Stretching out for the 1st time, the Conductor like to see two sprints before a route. She’s exiting races that have come back live.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. Clm 10000b
*Double Barreled Shotgun Shots of the Day #7 Because It’s Time (6/1) – 2nd off the layoff and dropping in class, he has the back class to crush this field.
#8 Spa Shackalacka (9/2) – Shipping in from Santa Anita, he’s gutting back to a sprint, dropping in class and posted strong works over the surface.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. OC 62500n1x
*Never a Doubt Lock From God #4 Jack Van Berg (2/1) – Cutting back to a spring after setting blistering fractions going longer, he’s the one to beat.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. S.Mdn 83k
#11 Silver City Blues (8/1) – He’s working well, and his sire wins at 19% with 1st time starters. Trainer Lon Wiggins is also 19% with a +$2.38 ROI with debut runners this year.
