No dice yesterday in the coast to coast pick 5, which still paid over $1000 despite being very chalky. Hopefully you passengers were able to cash some nice exactas with some prices the Ductor liked running behind the favorites. The Ductor looked at the sequence today, but he wasn’t a fan. He likes the latter half of the Gulfstream card, he’ll donate a few winners to you passengers. Skip.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. Moc 40000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Alpha Blue (9/2) – The Ductor sees #5 Bourboun Ready (7/2) being pounded at the windows dropping to the claiming ranks for the first time. This should help Alpha Blue’s price stay above 3/1. This gelding set an impossibly fast pace over the synthetic surface going a mile last time and rightfully tired. Now switching to dirt and cutting back to a sprint, he’s primed for a peak effort for top connections.
Race 7: 6½ Furlongs. Clm 8000
#2 Caramel Chip (5/1) – This horse had a bad trip, chasing wide the entire way last time. The Ductor liked that he showed improved speed in that race and now he drops to by far his lowest career class level. The Ductor sees him burying this group at a fair price.
Race 8: 7½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Mdn 84k
This is a wide open maiden race with many first time starters. It’s a good race to look for a price, especially when the Ductor is against the likely favorite. #6 Be My Sunshine (4/1) will be heavily bet for top connections, but she fits one of the few scenarios Saffie Joseph Jr. doesn’t excel at. He’s only 6% with 72 1st time starters on the turf in the last year and only 24% have hit the board. At a short price, he’s a play against.
The Ductor likes #5 Armonia (20/1), #7 Bo Derek (5/1), #10 Be Here Now (8/1), #11 Moral Turpitude (8/1) and #12 Love Rhapsody (12/1)
