Force Feed Friday: The Conductor’s Plays at Oaklawn Park

Throat Shot Thursday: The Conductor’s Plays at Oaklawn Park

A 5/1 winner to start the card at Gulfstream yesterday.  The Conductor kept swinging, but Gulfstream was very elusive after that.  The Conductor has had enough of Gulfstream and likes the Oaklawn card today.  A quick trip down to Arkansas never hurt anybody.  Oaklawn doesn’t have the Stamina to go 12 rounds with the Conductor.  Let’s Ride.

Race 1: 6 Furlongs. Clm 16000n2L

#4 E Rated (6/1) – Shipping in off a long layoff, this boy has serious early speed and his lightly raced.  Send him right to the front and bury them.

Bat Cave (College Basketball)

And On The Third Day The Bat Rose Again and Fulfilled Our Pockets

Well, Well, Well… Look who comes flying back to the Conductor.  Under Bat has taken the college basketball landscape by storm with his dominance the last two months.  However, we’ve rarely heard from him recently.  He’s been on a bender the last few weeks basking in his glory, forgetting what got him here and where he came from.  The Bat would be hanging upside down alone in his cave if it wasn’t for the Conductor.  He owes his great little Bat life to him, the least he could do was provide 3 picks a day. Right? Regardless, The Conductor is happy for the free money tonight. Fly Bat! Fly! #RidetheBat
