Enormous day. Let’s Ride.

#3 D’wildcat Indian (8/1) – Steadily progressing and stretching out for the 1st time, the Conductor sees her being better going longer.

Race 3: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.S.75K New Orleans Ladies Stakes

#7 La Sola Ranger (8/1) – 2nd off the layoff, this mare ran a thunderous late pace figure closing into a slow pace last start.  This race should heat up on the lead and the Conductor will key her in the tri.

#2 Big Bella Brown (9/2) – Pressing a hot pace last start, he’ll get first run at the leader. Jose Ortiz hops aboard as well.

Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 50k

#1 Curriusly (20/1) – Getting back to her preferred turf surface, she’s run some very strong late pace figures.  She should get a good trip, saving ground and a getting a hot pace to run at.  The Conductor will key her in the trifecta at a bomb.

Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. S.75K Crescent City Derby

*Never a Doubt Vegas Bailout Lock of the Day #2 Shang (9/5) – He is going to eviscerate this field.  Absolute standout.

#10 Copper Bullet (4/1) – The Conductor loved her 2nd last time off a layoff in the G3 Razor Back last time and Rated R Superstar came back to win his next race who finished 3rd.  He’ll get a perfect stalking trip just behind the early leaders.

#7 Bricks and Mortar (2/1) – The Conductor saw his Pegasus Cup win with his own eyes.  He’s a stud.

*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Sueno (8/1) – This colt is steadily progressing and will like the additional 1/16 of a mile today. The Southwest and Sham Stakes have come back strong and he’ll get a perfect trip sitting just off the #6 War of Will (6/5), who will hopefully be pressured by #10 Spinoff (8/1).
