It was nice to get back into the winner’s circle yesterday even though the passengers bet him down to 3/1. Since Turf Paradise was kind to the Ductor, the train will stay in the desert for another day. The Ductor needs a tan anyway. Keeneland and spring racing is just around the corner, time to pick up speed. Skip.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. OC 40000b
#7 Greek Geek (8/1) – The Ductor understands this is a heinous morning line, but there are enough contenders in here where we should get 7/2 or better. This gelding was bet to favoritism off a long layoff last time and ran just fine off the bench trying to close into a slow pace. With two solid works since, a jockey upgrade and a good post today, he looks primed to run his best. He has the figures to beat this group and he loves to get his picture taken when in contention. Simple winner. Skip.
