The Conductor was heinous at Churchill yesterday, but it was a classic bait and switch. He got all his losers out of the way and saved his winners for the mandatory pick 6 payout today. What a smart Conductor, Let’s Ride.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) Alw 97000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #10 Salvator Mundi (10/1) – This is a very tough race to start the sequence and the Conductor will be spreading. This colt is the price horse he likes most. 2nd off the layoff and getting back to the turf, he just missed being a Grade 3 winner by a head last year. That’s by far the best effort in this group to date.
The Conductor will also use: 1,2,4,8,11,12
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. 120K Kelly’s Landing Stakes
#7 Petrov (6/1) – The Conductor will include a price with the favorite. This horse ran a good 2nd vs similar last start and has gotten better with each start this year. His win at Saratoga last summer gives him a chance.
The Conductor will also use: 1
Race 9: 5 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) Alw 104000n1x
The Conductor is going to play against the heavy favorite #12 Om (2/1) in this spot. Drawn to the outside, his weapon is speed going longer, cutbacks don’t work on the turf like they do in dirt.
The Conductor will use: 1,2,5,7,8,9,10
Race 10: 6 Furlongs. F.125K Debutante Stakes
*Never a Doubt Pick 6 Single Lock #7 Magic Dance (8/5) – You couldn’t ask for much more in her debut. She would have to take a step backwards to be beat today. The Conductor will take a stand.
Race 11: 6 Furlongs. G3 Bashford Manor Stakes
#2 Snell Yea (8/1) – The Conductor liked how hard he tried last start at Churchill and he doesn’t have to improve too much to have a chance.
The Conductor will also use: 1,10
Race 12: 1 Mile. (Turf) Mdn 95k
#12 On d’Oro (12/1) – Going two sprints to a route and trying turf for the first time, he can take a big step forward.
The Conductor will also use: 2,5,9
