The Conductor is going to end up back in the sewer wrestling the rats for cheese if he doesn’t pick it up at Gulfstream Park soon. The best motivation is desperation, Let’s Ride.
Race 6: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 16000
*Scratched #1 Mar Vista Miguel (15/1) – 3rd off the layoff today, this old man still has early speed and should be able to clear the field from the rail. If he can find himself on the lead turning for home, he’s tough to pass.
Race 7: 1 Mile. F.S.OC 12500n1x
#2 Miss Peppina (5/2) – Making her 2nd start in the Pletcher barn and off the layoff, she looks to get a favorable trip stretching out in a race without much pace.
Race 8: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) Alw 16000s
*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 New York’s Finest (8/1) – This old man is working well for a new barn off the break and the Conductor likes the bump up in class. Saez taking the mount means he’s ready to roll and when he fires, he’s game.
Race 9: 1 3/8 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 35000n1x
*#8 Crystalle (3/1) – This filly showed talent as a two-year-old at Gulfstream and she’s been stuck behind slow paces this year. The Conductor thinks the added distance will be her friend and anything around 3/1 would be a treat.
Race 10: 5½ Furlongs. F.Clm 12500n3L
#2 Domineer (4/1) – This filly is progressing and has early gas. The shorter distance will help her today.
