Yikes, the Conductor doesn’t play Remington often and it showed. Yesterday was gross, disgusting, and unacceptable, with only one short-priced winner. However, the good news is the train is headed back to Gulfstream Park, where the Conductor knows the ponies like the back of his hand. Let’s have a Wednesday like the last, Let’s Ride.
12:35pm ET Race 1: 1 Mile. Clm 30000b
#6 Empire Power (3/1) – Dueling and just missing going 7 furlongs last start, he’s working well and in the best form in the group. He should get a nice trip today, on or near a slow pace.
Race 2: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 16000n2L
*Double Barrel Buckshots #3 Mija Bella (15/1) – The Conductor is looking for prices in this open race. Her lone grass race was poor, but it was against much tougher and she’s run solid figures on dirt. She is lightly raced and has major upside.
#11 Glorious Freedom (12/1) – Her win last start was the fastest in this field by the Conductor’s numbers. She has top connections and will have every chance if she can work out a trip from the outside post.
Race 3: 1 Mile. F.Clm 6250n2L
#5 Tapete Claire (3/1) – She dueled and finished a strong 3rd last time and the Conductor likes that she’s stretching out in distance for top connections.
Race 4: 1 Mile. MC 12500
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Curlin’s Knight (8/1) – He ran an above par figure vs tougher at Woodbine last start. He adds blinkers today and is now in the barn of trainer David Kassen, who has a +$0.96 ROI this year 1st off the claim.
Race 5: 7½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.MC 50000
#10 Getmotherarose (4/1) – Facing tougher up in New York, she’s had two solid sprint races and now stretches out. Her early pace figures stand out against this group.
Race 6: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) F.Clm 16000n3L
#5 Not Nice (6/1) – Steadily improving, she’s won two in a row and clearly likes sprinting on the turf best. Good form is always dangerous in these low-level claimers. She’ll be nice to the Conductor.
Race 7: 7½ Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 60k
#8 Onthewaytonevrland (8/1) – He ran a big number in his debut baby race at Keeneland in the spring. Posting bullet works for top connections, he’s bred for the turf and to be a good one.
Race 8: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) S.OC 16000n1x
#4 Black Pepper (9/2) – His early pace figures on dirt give him an advantage in here and his dam has produced a turf winner. His early gas is dangerous on any surface.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. F.OClm 50000
*Never a doubt T-Bond Lock of the Day #2 A Bit of Both (1/1) – She murdered the field in her Gulfstream debut and is now in the Servais barn. She won’t lose, but will be a very short price.
*Update She Scratched – #3 Jeltrin (10/1) – Another blowout winner last start, she ran a competative number for this group and that last race came back live.
Race 10: 1 Mile. MC 12500
#11 Treasure Bay (8/1) – Running above par efforts at Gulfstream on the turf, he ran 2nd at this level last time and should step forward in his 2nd start off the layoff. The Conductor likes his work tab as well.
