The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Sprint Preview

Race 8: 6 Furlongs. G1 Breeders’ Cup Sprint

*#1 Catalina Cruiser (4/1) – He’s being forgotten about for a horse that has only lost one career start. He also looks to get a good trip sitting behind a hot pace. He’ll be on the Conductor’s tickets and thinks his price will float up a bit higher.

#2 Hog Creek Hustle (20/1) – This is a little too short and too tough for him to be a legit contender. He could come running for 3rd at best.

#3 Firenze Fire (12/1) – This colt has run some very fast races, but they’ve all come at Belmont Park. The price will be the deciding factor for the Conductor, but he’s leaning against him.

#4 Mitole (9/5) – The Conductor can’t knock him, but he can’t separate him from the other logical contenders.  He won’t be pressing him like others may.

#5 Engage (15/1) – He’s not in this class, 3rd at best.

*#6 Shancelot (4/1) – This colt has shown brilliance in his young career. The Conductor cannot ignore his potential and must use him. He’ll be the Conductor’s win bet if he goes off above 3/1. Navarro will make sure he has his vitamins.

#7 Whitmore (15/1) – This gelding’s best days are behind him, he’s a contender for 3rd.

#8 Landeskog (12/1) – Scratched

#9 Imperial Hint (4/1) – He is a serious sprinter and is drawn well to the outside. He’s been nails in his last two starts and he’ll be on all the Conductor’s tickets.

#10 Matera Sky (30/1) – He should have stayed in Japan.

Race 7: 1 1/4 Mile. (Turf) F.G1 Maker’s Mark Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf

#2 Sistercharlie (8/5) – The more the Conductor looks at this race, the more he can’t see her getting beat. He certainly won’t be using any of the American runners and its not the strongest European contingent. Winner of six Grade 1’s in a row she’ll be the singled on most of the Conductor’s tickets.

Stop Motion Alcohol GIF

#9 Villa Marina (8/1) and #12 Fanny Logan (15/1) – These are the only two Europeans the Conductor will use as savers on a few tickets and will use with Sistercharlie in the exacta. Both are in good form and have upside.


The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile Preview

Race 6: 1 Mile. G1 Big Ass Fans Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile

#1 Giant Expectations (12/1) – The Conductor doesn’t have many expectations for this boy. He doesn’t like to win but he can run 3rd.

#2 Improbable (3/1) – This his preferred distance and he’s a win contender. However, he will be over bet like he always is, so the Conductor is leaning against him.

#3 Spun to Run (6/1) – He ran a monster figure last time exiting the Pennsylvania Derby, which is one of the reasons the Conductor likes the others who participated. The Conductor doesn’t think he’s classy enough to win, but he’s dangerous.

*#4 Mr. Money (6/1) – If the Conductor gets anything close to this price, he’ll bet him. He’s exiting the PA Derby and the Conductor thinks he’s sitting on a monster race.

Make It Rain Money GIF

#5 Omaha Beach (8/5) – His return to the races was very impressive, but that may have been his best bullet. The Conductor isn’t as bullish on him as the public, but he is absolutely a contender.

#6 Ambassadorial (30/1) – Toss.

#7 Coal Front (6/1) – This ridgling won’t get the early lead which will really hurt his chances.

*#8 Blue Chipper (20/1) – He’s bomb that the Conductor likes. Shipping in from Korea, the Conductor likes the tape on this gelding and he’s working well on all accounts. He’s a runner that can knock the passengers out of the pools.

Boom Fail GIF

#9 Diamond Oops (15/1) – His race two back at Saratoga splitting Imperial Hint and Mitole shouldn’t be ignored. Winning is a tough ask, but the Conductor will use him in the exacta and tri at a big number.

#10 Snapper Sinclair (30/1) – No thanks.


The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint Preview

Race 5: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) G1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint

#1 Totally Boss (5/1) – This gelding is in great form, but the Conductor can’t see him getting any kind of trip from the rail. He got a brutal draw for a closer in a turf sprint.

*#2 Pure Sensation (5/1) – Any runner that can be on the lead turning for home must be used in here and he’s the most likely to do so. The Conductor gives him the best chance to win.

#3 Imprimis (8/1) – He’s disappointed since returning from Ascot in June. The Conductor is leaning against him.

#4 Shekky Shebaz (12/1) – He’s become a different animal in the Servis barn (shocker). The Conductor will absolutely be using him.

#5 Stubbins (12/1) – He’s steadily progressing and hasn’t run a bad race sprinting on the turf, but he’ll be too far back early for the Conductor’s liking.

#6 Stormy Liberal (8/1) – This old man’s best days are behind him. He’s not close to the same horse who won this race last year.

#7 Leinster (8/1) – The Conductor doesn’t like the runners from Woodford race he’s exiting.

#8 Legends of War (20/1) – He’s too slow.

#9 Final Frontier (6/1) – This colt’s last race came back very fast on paper. The Conductor must include him.

#10 Eddie Haskel (9/2) – The Conductor is torn on this gelding. Can he win? Yes. But the Conductor is leaning toss at the price he’ll likely be and his last two efforts.

*11 Om (15/1) – He’ll be the Conductor’s key in the exacta and trifecta. He’s a warrior and the Conductor liked his last victory over a solid runner in #1 Totally Boss. He gets back to his home track here, is working well and will be flying late.

#12 Belvoir Bay (12/1) – She gets a tough draw and is her best down the hill. She’s not as good on the flat.


The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint Preview

Race 4: 7 Furlongs. F.G1 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint

#1 Covfefe (2/1) – The rail is a tough draw she’ll get early pace pressure. The Conductor wants to be against her but there is a chance the circumstances don’t matter at all and she’ll bury them. She’s the most talented in the field.

#2 Danuska’s My Girl (20/1) – No chance.

#3 Heavenhasmynikki (20/1) – Too slow.

*#4 Come Dancing (5/2) – Drawn well to the outside of Covfefe, she looks to get a perfect trip stalking a hot pace. She’s the Conductor’s top pick and the one he’ll press most here.

Shakira GIF

#5 Lady Ninja (10/1) – Too slow.

#6 Bellafina (6/1) – She loves Santa Anita and another filly that looks to get a nice stalking trip. She pressed a hot pace last time and is cutting back in distance, a move the Conductor likes. However, her declining form gives him pause and she’ll likely be over bet.

*#7 Selcourt (10/1) – The Conductor liked her last year entering this race and she got cooked in a hot pace. That may be her demise again this year, but she’s drawn well and has a chance if Covfefe stubs his toe out of the gate. She’ll be a big number and has figures to run back to that make her competitive in here. The Conductor will use her defensively.

#8 Dawn the Destroyer (12/1) – She can run underneath with a hot pace to close into but is too slow to win.

#9 Spiced Perfection (4/1) – The Conductor won’t use her on the win end. Her figures are too slow for the price she’ll be.


The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Preview

Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. G1 TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile

*#1 Dennis’ Moment (8/5) – He’s the one to beat plain and simple. He’s working like a monster by all accounts.

Dennis Rodman Falling GIF

#2 Wrecking Crew (20/1) – Stretching out for the first time, he’ll be a bomb and has upside. The Conductor will use him underneath while most wont.

#3 Shoplifted (20/1) – He’s not fast enough.

#4 Storm the Court (20/1) – It’s a home game for him with strong connections, maybe he can clunk up for 3rd.

*#5 Scabbard (8/1) – This colt is the price the Conductor thinks has a major chance. In his first time routing he steadied and lost all momentum going into the far turn and still came running at #1 Dennis’ Moment. If the #1 gets beat, this is the boy to do it.

Taking Out Michael Fassbender GIF

#6 Eight Rings (2/1) – The Bobo Baffert runner with all the hype, he is an obvious contender but the Conductor is slightly against him. He wasn’t impressed with his finish in the American Pharoah Stakes and will be heavily bet. He may get loose on the lead again however so the Conductor can’t be completely against him.

#7 Anneau d’Or (15/1) – This is asking a lot in his first dirt race.

#8 Full Flat (30/1) – No shot.


The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf Preview

Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf

#1 Living in the Past (15/1) – The Conductor didn’t like her finish last race.

#2 Croughavouke (20/1) – The west coast turf runners aren’t in this class.

#3 Shadn (10/1) – This filly has been very consistent across the pond and a good foundation. The Conductor won’t rule her out.

#4 Abscond (15/1) – She had a favorable trip last time up close to a slow pace. The Conductor doesn’t think she’s good enough.

#5 Daahyeh (5/1) – She’s the best of the Euros and is a definite contender with a good draw.

#6 Unforgetable (20/1) – The Conductor will forget about her.

*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Crystalle (8/1) – She looks to be the Conductor’s best bet on Friday’s card if we get anything close to that morning line. This girl ran a monster late pace figure closing into a slow pace and looks to get a much better setup in this one. With a solid draw and Rosario aboard, the Conductor is licking his chops.

Fresh Prince Of Bel Air Crystal GIF

#8 Tango (10/1) – This filly is a seasoned vet at this point and has faced quality competition in Europe. Her blowout victory last time caught the Conductor’s attention.

#9 Albigna (9/2) – Another European contender.

#10 Fair Maiden (12/1) – She’s the other American that intrigues the Conductor. She’s obliterated fields sprinting and will get a firm turf course for the first time Friday, which the Conductor expects her to appreciate.

#11 Sharing (12/1) – The Conductor can’t knock her too much, but he doesn’t think she can win from this post.

#12 Sweet Melania (5/1) – She’s been impressive in her young career, but the Conductor doesn’t like her in this spot. She has a wide draw and will be contesting a hot early pace. She’ll be over bet in the Conductor’s opinion.

#13 Selflessly (8/1) – She beat #7 Crystalle, who the Conductor likes best, last time but she doesn’t look to get as favorable a trip here and will be heavily bet from the Chad Brown barn.

#14 Etoile (12/1) – This filly has talent, but the Conductor will fade her from out there.


The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Preview

Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. F.G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies

#1 Donna Volce (3/1) – This group doesn’t have a heavy favorite and this girl may have the most upside. However, she is untested routing and will get heavy pace pressure at a short price.

*#2 Two Sixty (15/1) – In her first try routing last time, she was dominant and ran a very fast time for the distance. Normally, Gulfstream shippers running big numbers in restricted races will no be taken seriously by the Conductor, but at this price in an open race the Conductor is intrigued. He may mess around with her.

Bat Man Loop GIF

#3 Perfect Alibi (10/1) – She doesn’t want to go this far.

#4 British Idiom (7/2) – This girl was visually impressive last time but had a perfect trip and didn’t run a huge number. She can win, but the Conductor doesn’t see a big step forward coming and she’ll be over bet.

#5 Lazy Daisy (12/1) – She can hit the board but can’t win.

#6 Bast (7/2) – Pressing a slow pace and barely gutting out a victory at 1/5 last time, this is another filly who will be over bet. A contender yes, but she’s no superstar.

*#7 Wicked Whisper (7/2) – Of the morning line favorites, she’s the one the Conductor likes best. She’s looked very professional in her two victories and has plenty more in the tank.

Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia Shut Up GIF

#8 K P Dreamin (20/1) – She’s intriguing at a big price. The Conductor will use her underneath and if there is a pace meltdown, she has a punchers chance.

#9 Comical (8/1) – This filly returned to form last time after showing talent in the early summer. It’s a home game for connections and nothing would surprise the Conductor from her. She could finish 1st or last and the Conductor wouldn’t bat an eye. He’s leaning only using her underneath.


The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Preview

The Europeans have dominated this race, but with tough draws this year they’re not a cinch. The Conductor isn’t in love with Chad Brown either

Race 6: 1 Mile. (Turf) G1 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf

*#1 Our Country (15/1) – The Conductor likes this colt at a big price in this spot. He’s run very strong late pace figures and has some troubled trips that have muddied up his form. He was hung very wide last time and will be able to save ground here from the rail. His maiden breaker was as good as you’ll see on turf.

#2 Structor (5/1) – 2/2 in his 1st two career starts, he hasn’t done anything wrong, but hasn’t shown the Conductor anything special. At a short price for Chad Brown he is a contender, but will be over bet.

#3 Peace Achieved (10/1) – Winner of three in a row and steadily progressing, the Conductor can’t knock him, but doesn’t think he’s fast enough to win.

#4 Decorated Invador (4/1) – He’s shown versatility, winning convincingly over firm and soft turf. The Conductor likes him, but he may be over bet as well.

#5 Vitalogy (GB) (10/1) – The Conductor would take this colt 10/10 times over #3 Peace Achieved who held him off last start. He has a very strong late kick and the Conductor will absolutely be using him.

#6 Graceful Kitten (15/1) – He won’t be able to get the distance.

*#7 Andesite (12/1) – The Conductor likes him better than Structor in here. He showed fight in the Pilgrim and galloped out back in front of Structor by a mile after the wire. He’ll be a big price and will be tough to pass down the lane.

#8 Billy Bats (20/1) – The Conductor won’t be using any California turf horses.

#9 Gear Jockey (20/1) – He can’t win going this far.

#10 War Beast (20/1) – No California horses.

#11 Proven Strategies (30/1) – This colt needs shorter.

#12 Arizona (5/2) – Undoubtedly the class of the field, this colt has been running against the best across the pond. Pinatubo would be odds on against this group and is a serious race horse. The wide draw will not make this an easy task, but the Conductor will absolutely be using him.

#13 Fort Meyers (12/1) – A tough draw, but with the success of the Europeans in this race, the Conductor can’t ignore him. His European form is strong and he has a lot of experience.

#14 Hit the Road (10/1) – No California turf horses.


The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint Preview

The first BC race on Friday has a potential single for the Conductor.

Race 5: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) G2 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint

#1 Chimney Rock (10/1) – This colt will be coming from the back of the pack, but the Conductor doesn’t give him much of a chance to win. If he couldn’t beat #7 Kimari (7/2) last time with that trip, he never will. The post position did him no favors as well.

#2 Band Practice (IRE) (12/1) – The Conductor’s mostly against the Euro shippers in these sprint races. This short of a sprint isn’t what they are used to. You must really impress the Conductor across the pond to make him respect you, and this filly doesn’t.

#3 Another Miracle (15/1) – This colt looks too slow for the Conductor.

#4 Dream Shot (IRE) (15/1) – He likes to run underneath at big prices, but isn’t good enough to win.

#5 Encoder (15/1) – This is a home game for this colt, and he’ll appreciate the cutback in distance after making an early move into a hot pace last time. Without the pace you would expect in here, the Conductor thinks he can only get up for minor awards.

#6 Alligator Alley (GB) (12/1) – Fade

*#7 Kimari (7/2) – The Conductor loved the new dimension he showed last time sitting off the pace. He’s shown brilliance in his young career and can dictate his own trip. The Conductor has a feeling that he is going to put on a show in this one.

Image result for win gif

#8 Dr Simpson (FR) – Fade

#9 Four Wheel Drive (3/1) – The other Ward runner, he’s shown major ability in his first two starts with two easy victories. He looks to get a good trip up close to the pace, but the Conductor would never take him at a lower price than Kimari, who is much more proven.

#10 A’Ali (IRE) (6/1) – Of the Euro shippers, he’s the one the Conductor likes best. He has a nice burst when asked and will appreciate the firmer ground. The Conductor thinks he’s dangerous.

#11 King Neptune (15/1) – Fade

#12 Cambria (12/1) – She hasn’t done anything wrong, but has a tough draw and doesn’t have the early speed to give her a chance on the win end.

Kimari looks to be one of the runners the Conductor is narrowing in on this Breeders Cup.
