Great day at Turf Paradise yesterday, highlighted by a 11/1 winner to start the day and a 24/1 shot running 2nd in the finale. The Conductor will keep the train in Phoenix for one more day, then its off the Bluegrass state. 1 more sleep until Keeneland. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 12500
#5 Ryderroo (15/1) – Her last race was disappointing, but her race two back makes her competitive at a monster number.
Race 2: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 10000n1x
#1 Luna’s Empire (7/2) – Switching back to her preferred turf surface, she ran a good 2nd last time she dropped to this level.
Race 3: 4½ Furlongs. MC 5000
#4 Gotta Candy Ride (10/1) – Dropping in class, he broke slow in his debut and still ran ok. He’s dropping in class and this jockey/trainer combo has been hot recently.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. Clm 12500
#5 Doc Curlin (9/5) – His best wins handily.
Race 5: 6½ Furlongs. F.MC 5000
*Never a Doubt Humpday Lock #7 Here’slookinatya (7/2) – She ran a good 3rd vs tougher last start and has an early pace edge over this field.
Race 6: 5 ½ Furlongs. F.Clm 3000n4L
#3 Chocolate Goddess (8/1) – This filly took a step forward last start and has past performances that can beat this field. The Conductor sees her improving again.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.MC 12500
#2 Kasey’s Callin (9/2) – The Conductor doesn’t have a strong opinion in this race.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) OC 10000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Bobby Baby (6/1) – He was pinched back and still ran a good 4th last start and won impressively in his two races prior. 1st off the claim for top connections, over 4/1 would be glorious.
