A couple of winners including the lock of the day yesterday for the Conductor. He’ll keep the train down in Louisiana for one more day before heading up to New York tomorrow. A little gumbo and a tall glass of stew on a Wednesday? The Conductor certainly will at Louisiana Downs. Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1m70yds. MC 5000
#1 Bailey’s Power (5/2) – Exiting a race that has come back live and lightly raced, he’s the only runner you can possibly like in here.
Race 2: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 12500n2L
#3 Meditate (6/1) – The Conductor will find his Zen with this boy.
Race 3: 1m70yds. F.MC 5000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Catbalee (12/1) – Coming from facing tougher at the Far Grounds, she hasn’t shown much in her first two starts, but should be forwardly placed. She’s taken some money at the windows and changes barns.
Race 4: 5 Furlongs. F.S.Clm 5000
#2 Doc’s Rocket (9/2) – She has the strongest early pace figures and has been facing tougher lately.
Race 5: 7 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 7500
#8 T’ Cadeau (5/1) – This gelding has been pressing hot paces vs tougher at the Fair Grounds. He gets a weaker group and a rider upgrade today.
Race 6: 5 ½ Furlongs. S.OC 12500n1x
#2 Saltee Shark (9/2) – The Conductor likes his steady progression and sees him getting a perfect trip sitting just behind the dueling speed horses, ready to pounce.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. S.Clm 50003n3L
*Never a Doubt Humpday Lock #6 Kool Yankee (9/2) – He showed promise as a young colt at Louisiana Downs and is in as good form.
