The Conductor is dumpster diving after his performance Friday. Luckily, he found Saturday’s racing form in the bottom of the can. Juicy Prices, Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 1 Mile. Mdn 50k
#2 Will Take Control (9/2) – The Conductor likes his work tab, including a bullet three back. Whenever Zayas takes the mount for Kiesaris its a good sign as well.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.My Charmer Stakes
*Double Barrel Buckshot #6 Madita (10/1) – Throw out her last race on synthetic, her turf form fits right in with this group. Her morning line would be a delicious price.
#7 Piedi Bianchi (15/1) – She’s in good dirt form and is bred to be better on the lawn. She hasn’t run terribly in her two prior turf efforts with troubled trips and she’s dangerous if her dirt form transfers.
Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. G3 Harlan’s Holiday Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Tatweej (4/1) – If we can get 4/1, the Conductor will back up the caboose and unload at the windows. He’s steadily progressing for Pletcher and working well coming into today. Most importantly, there is no speed in this race and he can dictate the terms on the lead.
Race 10: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) G2 F. Lauderdale Stakes
#5 Channel Cat (15/1) – Unlike the 9th, the major contenders in here are all speed horses. This horse is working well off the layoff and has been running well vs very classy Grade 1 horses. He looks to get a nice trip in here as well.
Race 11: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) MC 50000
#8 Dassult Mirage (15/1) – He ran a good 2nd in the slop in a race rained off the turf in his debut. He’s aggressively moved up in class here and will get to try the surface he’s meant for today. Emisael taking the mount is a good sign as well.
