The Conductor gave you four horses at Gulfstream Sunday and three of them scratched The Ductor does take kindly to wasted racing days, especially on the weekends. He’s already preparing for this week. Not a harder worker on the rails. Skip.
Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) Clm 50000n2L
#9 Bailador (8/1) – This 1st time gelding is working well off the bench for a 21% barn off layoffs. He also switches back to turf where he’s only tried once prior. His breeding screams that he wants to mow and he gets a rider upgrade to Gaffalione today. He looks to get a favorable trip up close or setting a slow pace.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.S.OC 20000n1x
#3 Shes All Woman (4/1) – This mare made a strong wide move on the turn vs open company at Gulfstream last time. Now 2nd off the layoff, dropping in class and shortening a furlong, she should beat this field.
#5 Brittiz (10/1) – She’s the longshot that interests the Ductor. She’s been close to the pace routing on turf and synthetic for 6 starts and they finally cut her back to a dirt sprint. Brittiz began her career with a 2nd and a win sprinting on the dirt. She’ll be finishing strong late and can inject value into this race.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) OClm 35000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Shankar (4/1) – This gelding was impressive breaking his maiden in his first start on turf last time. He was bumped repeatedly going into the first turn and then traveled 3-wide and uncovered the entire way. You don’t see many horses win on turf with that type of trip. He gets a nice rail draw today and the Ductor will lean on him in a race that looks wide open on paper.
