Solid Sunday for the Conductor as his lock and gullet shot of the day found themselves in the winner’s circle. We made a little money back from a poor opening week at Saratoga and now we must keep up the momentum. With Del Mar opening on Wednesday, the Conductor will have his full card top picks for both Toga and Del Mar thru the rest of the meets. His generosity knows no bounds. The racing summer is upon us, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: Jumper Race – Pass
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. S. Rick Violette Stakes 100k
#3 Mission Wrapitup (7/5) – His debut blowout win was very impressive.
Race 3: 5 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) OC 62500n2x
#9 Fully Vested (2/1) – 2nd off the layoff, this gelding ran a very good 2nd last time in his first try on turf. He has serious early pace figures on dirt as well.
Race 4: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) Clm 40000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Hope Again (9/2) – 3rd off the layoff, he’s steadily progressing and won easily last start. Those are the types of runners the Conductor likes stepping up in class.
Race 5: 5 ½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 75k
#8 Devils Rendezvous (10/1) – This filly is working well, and her sire is winning at a 22% clip with 1st timers. The Conductor likes that Rosario hops aboard.
Race 6: 5 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Clm 30000n2L
#2 Avacado Toast (6/1) – She’s lightly raced and trending in the right direction. She also gets a small weight break.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Inner Turf) Mdn 90k
#7 Embellisher (5/1) – The two Chad Brown runners (6,9) are the ones to beat, but the Conductor will key this boy in the exacta. In his first start on turf last time, he set a hot pace and held on for a good 3rd. He gets a rider switch to Leparoux, who is very adept at rating speed horses on the front end.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. F.Clm 100000
*Never a Doubt Chad Brown Lock of the Day #7 Break Curfew (5/2) – This filly is very quick and has an early pace advantage over this group. Gate to wire.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. F.OC 62500n2x
#2 Carrera Cat (5/1) – 3rd off the layoff, this is another front-running filly the Conductor likes. Winner of four in a row, she’s has a chance to run them off their feet.
Race 10: 5 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.S. Mdn 78k
#3 Light in the Sky (9/2) – She’s well-bred for the turf and the jockey/trainer combo of Jose Ortiz/Linda Rice has been very good lately.
