The Conductor may not be able to afford his trip to the Pegasus after this week. The train is leaking oil badly. Luckily, we get back to home base for the rest of the week and get to play the track the Conductor loves most, Santa Anita. Just kidding, the card at Santa Anita got cancelled. To Gulfstream we go, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 Mile. Clm 12500n3L
*Never a Doubt Out of the Gate Lock of the Day #5 Tale of Fire (2/1) – He drops in class and his last race crushes this field. With Navarro at Gulfstream he’ll win for fun.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. S.MC 50000
#3 Kong Style (8/1) – This colt drops in class, adds blinkers and his races vs tougher have been decent. The Conductor also likes his workouts.
Race 3: 1 1/16. Mdn 50k
#5 Bebeau (2/1) – Pletcher is heating up and the Conductor liked this boy’s debut effort. That’s good enough for me.
Race 4: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.S. OC 16000n1x
#1 Reagan’s Odyssey (5/2) – She just missed at this level last start and is in good form. She’s the only one in the field that can beat the #8 Chad Brown filly.
Race 5: 1 1/16 Mile. F.Mdn 50k
#4 Makealitlemischief (6/1) – She ran well, setting the pace in her first time routing last start. She’ll step forward in her 2nd start off the layoff and have every chance.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 6250n3L
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Blue Whale (12/1) – She ran the highest last figure in the field with her win last start. At a big price, that’s all the Conductor needs to see.
Race 7: 5 Furlongs (Turf) Mdn 50k
#8 Nobiz Like Jetbiz (12/1) – This colt showed good early speed on dirt in his debut and is 1st off the claim for red hot trainer Jorge Duarte Jr. Saez also takes the mount, this boy must be live.
Race 8: 1 Mile. Clm 20000
#8 Saint Michael (8/1) – He’s been in impossible spots at Gulfstream in his last two spots, taking on stakes company. He’s run above par figures for this level and gets a rider upgrade to Irad Ortiz.
Race 9: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 35000
#9 Night Prowler (3/1) – This old man is dropping in class, in great form, and should run his best in his 2nd start off a layoff.
Race 10: 7 1/2 Furlongs. (Turf) F.MC 20000
#4 For Reef’s Sake (10/1) – Her debut was taken off the turf, and she still didn’t run poorly. She’s bred for the turf and her dam has produced 6 winners from 7 starters.
