Boxing Day is the Conductor’s Christmas. There is nothing quite like the opening day at Santa Anita on the 26th every year……except for this one. The 28th can’t come soon enough. In the meantime, the Conductor will take the train down to Louisiana and fire away with both fists. Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Clm 15000n2L
#8 Silent Force (20/1) – 2nd off the layoff, this colt’s numbers on dirt fit right in with this group. If he takes to the turf, he can hit the board at a massive number. The Conductor will key him in the trifecta.
Race 7: 1 1/16 Mile. Mdn 45k
#1 Ekati’s Verve (7/2) – He’s faced tough fields at Churchill and his race two back would make him tough to beat here.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) OC 40000n2x
#1 Quinn Murphy (6/1) – Stepping up in class after a nice win last time, she’s in good form and the Conductor thinks she’s up for the challenge.
Race 11: 1m70yds. F.Bob Fortus Memorial Stakes 75k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Out For a Spin (12/1) – 2nd off the layoff, her win in the Ashland this spring shows she is very talented. If she’s anything close to that price, she’s the Conductor’s best bet.
