Lock winner along with another short price and a few longer prices running 2nd made it an ok start to the week for the Conductor. Not good, not bad, we’ll keep the train at Mahoning Valley for another day, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 5 ½ Furlongs. F.MC 7500
#1 Solar System (5/1) – 1st off the claim, she’s plunging in class and has shown good speed vs tougher. That may be all it takes today.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 15000
#4 Ryoan (6/1) – Hopefully low % connections keep her price high. She’s coming into the race in the best form.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. Mdn 22.1k
#1/1A Entry (5/1) – Both these colts are working like they’re the real deal and this is a weak field.
Race 4: 1m70yds. F.MC 5000
#2 Forevor Thankful (6/1) – Stretching out in her 3rd start off the layoff, she improved last race and has past figures on turf that give her every chance today. She’s untested on dirt.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. Alw 23500n2L
*Never a Doubt New Driver Lock of the Day #1 Island Vice (2/1) – This gelding just missed at this level last start and that horse came back to win again. Gat to wire from the rail.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 7500n2L
#1 Granderalla (3/1) – Dropping in class for solid connections, she’s steadily progressing.
Race 7: 1m70yds. F.Clm 4000n2y
*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Vaughn (6/1) – She’s stepping up in class at Mahoning Valley, but her last race beats this field. This jockey/trainer combo is also red hot.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. MC 10000
#7 Wemadeittofifty (4/1) – No chance the Conductor makes it that long.
