Pick 6 Mandatory Payout at Gulfstream. Let’s whack this thing and fill the train with coal heading into the Holidays. Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 7½ Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 20000n3L
#3 Aycapote (10/1) – Switching to turf after a win on a sloppy track last time, he’s only tried the grass one other time in his career. He’s bred to be a turf horse and his figures fit with this group. The Conductor thinks he can knock out a bunch of tickets early.
Other Contenders: #4 Hero Up (30/1), #5 Dillon Rocks (5/1), #10 Conforto (2/1)
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.OC 25000n1x
#1 Hallawallah (6/1) – This filly showed talent last year and has struggled staying healthy. Working well for a new barn, she has the most upside in the field. Trainer Juan Avila is 19% with a +$4.71 ROI this year with runners off the bench.
Other Contenders: #5 Sonar (5/1), #7 Gerri B (3/1)
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) OC 62500n2x
#4 Kingmeister (6/1) – He’s shown he can run on turf and dirt in his young career and he’s working well off a short break. His allowance win at Saratoga was very impressive and the Conductor thinks he has major upside.
Other Contenders: #1 Greyes Creek (3/1), #7 Grand Journey (7/2)
Race 9: 1 3/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Via Borghese Stakes
#6 Cambeliza (8/1) – Draw a line thru her last race on yielding turf. She ran a monster late pace figure at Keeneland two back and will get firm turf again today.
Other Contenders: #2 Traipsing (7/2), #3 Court Return (6/1), #4 Cap de Creus (10/1), #8 Always Shopping (5/2), #9 Great Island (3/1).
Race 10: 7 Furlongs. G3 Mr. Prospector Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #12 Mind Control (15/1) – Posting a bullet work entering today, his form this spring would make him the favorite in here. The Conductor sees him cycling back to a top effort here.
Other Contenders: #2 Cool Arrow (12/1), #7 Diamond Oops (3/1), #9 Firenze Fire (5/2)
Race 11: 1 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 50k
#4 He’spuregold (10/1) – The Conductor doesn’t have a strong opinion in here, but liked this colt’s debut effort at Keeneland. He made an early move into a hot pace and should step forward today.
