No dice on the Oaklawn #Gullet shot yesterday. Dang slippery neck, but more opportunities today, Let’s Ride.
Oaklawn Race 5: 6 Furlongs. Clm 40000n2L
#5 War Detonator (4/1) – A first time gelding after being moved into an improved barn, his form this fall gives him every chance in here and he should step forward. He looks to get a favorable trip on or near a moderate pace.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. MC 30000
#6 Appraisal (10/1) – Dropping in class off the layoff and cutting back to a sprint, he’s working faster than Lukas runners typically do. He gets Lasix for the first time today and his race two back was very strong vs tougher.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. S.Alw 84000n1x
#9 Captain Don (7/2) – He’s coming in off a long layoff, but is working well for a barn that brings them back ready. His form at Oaklawn on a fast track is the best of the bunch.
Race 8: 6 Furlongs. F.Alw 84000n1x
#5 Ocean Breeze (5/2) – Cutting back to a sprint, this filly is a standout in here. She’s failed as the favorite in her last three starts, but she hasn’t run poor races. The Conductor sees her being an overlay in the 3/1 range with the bettors being sick of her.
Oaklawn Race 9: 6 Furlongs. Clm 10000n2L
*Gullet Shot of the Day #1 Critic (8/1) – 2nd off the claim for a stronger barn and also switching back from synthetic to dirt, his dirt for is as good as any in here. This race has no early pace and the Conductor is hoping he’s sent from the rail.
