They should build statues saluting the Conductor after his performance at Santa Anita Saturday. 15/1, 22/1 and 6/1 winners will keep the train rolling for weeks. Back down to Gulfstream tomorrow, don’t let the pony gods up for air! We love you Conductor! Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 6½ Furlongs. F.Mdn 47k
#3 Whispering Pines (5/2) – 3rd off the layoff and cutting back to a sprint after pressing the pace going a mile last time, she looks tough in here.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 35000
#10 Coffee Buzz Buzz (10/1) – Stretching out and trying grass for the first time, her breeding suggests she should have no problem doing either. She showed ability in her debut and is dropping in class today.
Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) Clm 20000n3L
#2 Convict Pike (10/1) – #6 Austrian (5/2) is the clear one to beat, but this is the price the Conductor likes most. Throw out her last race off a long layoff and off the turf. She’s run well against much tougher on grass and has a big class edge over this group.
Race 9: 1 Mile. OClm 20000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Danville (10/1) – Another race with a tough favorite in Avant Garde (2/1). This gelding has become a new animal in the Cheryl Winebaugh barn. He’s run well on multiple surfaces and his lone effort on a fast dirt track fits with this group. He looks to get a nice setup with a hot pace to run at as well.
Race 10: 7½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Mdn 50k
#2 Cash Refund (5/1) – She ran better than it looks in her debut last time with a wide trip. She adds blinkers today and shortens in distance.
