A nice Sunday for the Conductor at Oaklawn yesterday, multiple 4/1 winners and a few shorter prices as well. A solid weekend has the caboose filled with cash as we reset and start a new workweek. First stop will be Mahonig Valley for the Conductor today. A little Midwest racing with some nice full fields. Let’s keep the train rolling, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 Mile. Mdn 22.1K
#1 Mr Zydeco (9/2) – He’s been facing the toughest company of the group.
Race 2: 5 ½ Furlongs. F.S.Alw 38000nc
#4 Totally Obsessed (3/1) – 2nd off the layoff, she won nicely last start and is drawn well to the outside of the favorite. She’ll get a great stalking trip just off the speed.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 22.1K
#4 Sassy Seta (6/1) – She’s posting very consistent, quick works for a barn that can win first out. This field is ripe for a debut runner.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. F.S.Clm 7500b
#6 Graduation Gift (8/1) – 1st off the claim and 3rd off the layoff, this old mare is very consistent and will be finishing strongly. The Conductor will key her in the exacta.
Race 5: 1m70yds. Alw 23500n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Last Drop of Wine (15/1) – No chance we get 15/1 on this gelding, but hopefully a decent price. His figures fit at this level and he has an early pace advantage over this field.
Race 6: 1 Mile. Clm 40001y
#6 Saint’s Bro (8/1) – 2nd off the layoff, he didn’t run a step last start but needed the race badly. His races last year give him every chance.
Race 7: 5 ½ Furlongs. Clm 4000n2L
#9 Compulsive (8/1) – Shipping in from Turf Paradise, he set the pace over a tiring surface last start and ran a good 3rd. He also gets class relief today.
Race 8: 5 ½ Furlongs. Clm 5000n3L
*Never a Doubt Finisher Lock of the Day #4 Tap You’re It (5/2) – Lock it up, rub it down.
