The Conductor’s key horses keep scratching at Churchill Downs. With rain in the forecast, the Conductor will focus on the early pick 4 tomorrow with all dirt races. The Conductor is annoyed and the track will need to atone for its sins on the Sabbath. Let’s Ride.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 10000b
#1 Abramax (3/1) – It was tough to make up ground on the Keeneland dirt and that’s just what she did last time. Dropping in class today, she’s the most likely winner and very playable if she’s not bet too hard.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. MC 30000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Thrown for a Loupe (8/1) – He dueled into submission last time and plunges in class today. He also shortens a furlong and draws a nice outside post. The Conductor prays he’s close to that price.
Race 4: 1 Mile. Alw 87000n1x
#2 Glory Road (4/1) – Cross out his last race when he broke thru the gate. His race two back at Churchill Downs stretching out for the first time gives him more than a chance against this group.
Race 5: 1 Mile. Mdn 85k
#1 Adara (10/1) – There aren’t any standouts in here, so the Conductor will peek at this 1st time starter. He’s well bred and has a decent work tab at Churchill Downs for strong connections. Additionally, trainer Ken Mcpeek is 11% with a +$0.49 ROI debuting runners over a mile this year.
