This is a very weak card today at Santa Anita, so the Conductor will only focus on the late double. An ice cold double leading into Friday night is just what the doctor ordered. Never use two when one will do. Let’s Ride.
Race 8: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.MC 20000
#5 Buyback (7/2) – 2nd off the layoff today, her race pressing a hot pace vs tougher two back makes her the one to beat in the Conductor’s opinion. She should stay above 3/1.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 50000s
#2 Quarelle (3/1) – 1st off the claim for a red-hot Peter Miller, she’s got the strongest late pace figures in the field.
