Santa Anita is finally back in action and the Conductor has to pay for his golf trip somehow. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) S.Mdn 55k
#6 Squalotoro (8/1) – The Conductor likes this boy’s work tab and Puype can hit with first time starters. He’s 12% with a +$0.06 ROI this year with debut runners. The Conductor hates the M/L favorites in here.
Race 3: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.S.OC 50000n1x
#3 Florentine Diamond (9/2) – Whenever a 1st timer has a blowout debut win for very low % connections, the Conductor takes note. This filly may have some real talent.
Race 5: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) BaffleB75K
#3 Bulletproof One (2/1) – This filly can scoot early and she looks primed for a monster effort cutting back to a more preferable distance 2nd off the bench.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.MC 75000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Wine At Sunset (10/1) – Why is Mike Smith hopping aboard a 75k claimer who didn’t show much in their debut, for a barn he rarely rides for? The Conductor smells something fishy.
