3rd, 2nd, 2nd, 2nd, 7th yesterday for the Conductor at the Fair Grounds. Very frustrating. Back out west for a rebound Sunday. Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 5½ Furlongs. F.MC 20000
#3 Sugar Moon (30/1) – Call the Conductor crazy, but this bomb intrigues him. 1st off the claim for Val Brinkerhoff, this filly moves into a barn that can win for the first time in her career. Adding blinkers and Lasix 2nd off the layoff, she has early speed which makes her dangerous in a wide-open race. The Conductor is strongly against the favorite in here #8 Wicks and Chappies (6/5) after failing to get it done with a perfect trip last time.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. (Turf) F.G3 Sweet Life Stakes
#9 Majestic Steps (7/2) – She was very impressive breaking her maiden last time while being rank. Making her 2nd start in North America today, she should step forward.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) S.Mdn 61k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Big Frank Da Tank (15/1) – He ran a decent 3rd last time and looks like one that will improve with added distance. It is interesting that Prat rode him last time for such a small barn and he’s working well entering today. C’mon Tank! Skip!
