Esophagus Slice Saturday: The Conductor’s Pick 6 Mandatory Payout Play at Churchill Downs

The Conductor was heinous at Churchill yesterday, but it was a classic bait and switch.  He got all his losers out of the way and saved his winners for the mandatory pick 6 payout today.  What a smart Conductor, Let’s Ride.
