A few better trips yesterday could have made it a better day. However, we don’t want excuses, we want winners! With Oaklawn’s weekend being canceled, the train will be stationed at Gulfstream and Santa Anita thru Sunday. Skip.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.OClm 35000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Appointed (15/1) – She won easily on debut and also was well bet that day for a 4% barn. She’s moved into a better barn and has every chance in this wide-open affair.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. OClm 50000
#2 Paladio (5/1) – The Saffie runners look tough in here, but this colt intrigues the Conductor and his price will likely float up. He found his form on the class drop last time at Gulfstream and is now bumping back up vs tougher. He has the figures to win at this level and has already beaten the morning line favorite too.
Race 9: 1½ Mile. (Turf) OC 35000n1x
#6 Focus Group (5/1) – This old man is dropping out of stakes company for the first time in years. Putting the blinkers back on today, the Conductor sees him finding his way back to the winners circle.
Race 10: 1 Mile. (Turf) MC 25000
#6 Aesthetically (12/1) – He showed something sprinting in his debut at Gulfstream, making up ground on the turn. Additionally, stretching out for the first time, he has upside in another wide open affair.
