Tough sledding for the Conductor Saturday at the Fair Grounds. He can’t seem to get a feel for that track on the big days. However, the heat is about to turn up with Keeneland and the final Derby preps right around the corner. The world will open up again soon and the Ductor is ready to pounce. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6½ Furlongs. Clm 6250n3L
#6 The Reign Man (4/1) – He took a big step forward last time with the switch to the Zerpa barn. He’ll get the jump on the favorite, who loves to run 2nd here.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 16000n3L
#5 Gasparilla Blast (4/1) – This filly has had some time off after a weak effort last time. Her race two back beats this field and if Castellano is taking the mount, she’s live.
Race 8: 7½ Furlongs. (Turf) Alw 20000s
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Semper Fi (6/1) – Drawn well to the inside, he flattened out last time and shortens in distance today. He’s been facing tougher than this group and looks to get a nice tracking trip.
