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.
