The attempted clean up continues as the NYRA suspends Baffert and bans Linda Rice for three years. Maybe the sport will get its act together after all. A bright spot in racing is what Canterbury Park has decided to do this meet. Racing on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, full fields, 10% pick 5 and 6 takeout. The Ductor will be adding the circuit to his repertoire. Only Mondays off for now on, man he works so hard. Thank you for your service Mr. Ductor. Skip.
Race 5) 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 7500b
*Gullet Shot of the Day #12 Riverboat Gambler (10/1) – Stretching out to a mile and switching to turf 1st off the claim, this gelding is very intriguing. His dirt numbers give him every chance against this group and he placed in one of his two turf starts, both were sprinting.
Race 6) 5½ Furlongs. F.S.Mdn 35k
#6 Sundance Star (2/1) – 2nd off the layoff after a good 2nd vs tougher last time at Tampa, she’s the most likely winner in the sequence.
Race 7) 5 Furlongs. (Turf) OClm 10000
#8 Just Blaze (4/1) – His last two starts have been rained off the turf and he finally gets back to what he does best today. He’s the most proven turf sprinter in the field.
Race 8) 5½ Furlongs. S.Alw 36000n1x
#7 Thealligatorhunter (6/1) – He’s coming in off a layoff, but the Conductor likes his work tab and his race two back vs stakes company beats this group.
Race 9) 1 Mile. Clm 5000b
#2 Praise Loudly (12/1) – Stretching out after decent effort sprinting, hes the lone speed in here and the Conductor has question marks about everyone in this field. He may be able to steal it up front at a big number.
