Del Mar time, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: Mile. F,Alw 12500s
#6 Lea’s Reward (12/1) – There is no chance she’ll be 12/1 with the fastest last race in the field on the Conductor’s numbers. She finished in front of #4 Princess Leia last time, who came back to win her next race. If she’s above 4/1 the Conductor will be happy.
Race 2: 1 Mile. (Turf) OC 62500n2x
#3 Sawyer’s Hill (5/1) – Setting a hot pace and holding on for 2nd at this level last time, he should step forward in his 2nd start off the layoff. He likes this Del Mar turf course and he will get a good trip in a race without much pace on or near the lead.
Race 3: 1 1/8 Mile. G3 Native Diver Stakes
*Never a Doubt Lock of the Day #6 Dabster (2/1) – He’s progressing, the longer the better and his last two races were very impressive. The Conductor is very against the heavy favorite #4 Battle of Midway going this long.
Race 4: 1 Mile. (Turf) MC 80000
#3 You Must Chill (5/1) – Early move into a hot pace last time is a classic bet back. At 44/1 last time she should stay a good price.
Race 5: 6.5 Furlongs. F.Clm 18000
#8 Lucky Student (3/1) – She’s run above par and beaten this level multiple times. She’ll be tough to beat.
Race 6: 1 Mile. (Turf) G3 Cecil B. DeMille Stakes
#2 Rijeka (4/1) – He steadied and hit the rail last time pressing a hot pace and still held on for 3rd. The Conductor will salivate if he gets 4/1 in this small field.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 53k
#1 Bizwhacks (5/1) – She should improve returning to dirt and the Conductor loves the cutback. She’s run figures good enough to beat this group sprinting.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) S.OC 20000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Push Through (6/1) – He took a while to break his maiden, but the Conductor liked his last effort, closing into a slow pace. This group is very weak and he has every chance.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. MC 20000
#5 Spanish Bay (7/2) – He has been facing much tougher, his lone race on dirt beats this group and he gets Lasix for the first time. He’s also working like rocket.
