18-1 on Weekend Dreamer in the finale yesterday at Gulfstream is just what the Conductor ordered. Maybe his family will get presents this year after all? Let’s see what Santa has in store for us grateful passengers today. Skip!
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.S.MC 25000
#1 Stepping Forward (7/2) – She showed speed at Gulfstream in her debut vs tougher and is now taking a big class drop. Irad taking the mount for a barn he never rides for means she’s live.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) Alw. 16000
#10 Charge Account (8/1) – Switching back to the lawn, his race two back on the turf probably beats this field. That morning line would be a treat.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. Clm 12500n3L
#2 Captain D (10/1) – He made a middle move into a hot pace last time at Gulfstream and now cuts back in distance and switches to dirt. He’s run fine in his limited dirt starts and will be facing his weakest competition to date.
Race 9: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) F.OC 16000n2x
#11 Song River (6/1) – The Conductor likes this filly turning back to a sprint. She has enough early speed to put herself in a good position early.
Race 10: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) F.Clm 16000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Dealer’s Girl (8/1) – She showed wicked early speed off a layoff last time and she should be able to clear this field early. She’ll be more fit today.
