Only one 7/2 winner and a couple of 2nds brought the train to a halt yesterday. A bad end to an otherwise solid week. Most conductors would leave the train in the station on this Monday to prepare for this week’s major tracks, but that’s not how the Conductor rolls. He’ll provide us with winners at Parx to make the start of our workweek a little more bearable. What a gentleman, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 Mile. F.Clm 75000n3L
#4 Hannah Due (6/1) – She returned to form and the Parx winners circle last start. She looks to be cycling up and has past figures that can beat this group.
Race 2: 7 Furlongs. Clm 5000
#2 Rings of Jupiter (10/1) – He’s dropping in class, getting a weight break and has early speed. This gelding is also young and spry compared to the rest of these old men.
Race 3: 1 Mile. F.OC 50000n2x
#1 Gotta Be Strong (3/1) – She can beat the heavy favorite #6 Jennifer’s Dream (4/5) if she continues to progress. She’s moving in the right direction.
Race 4: 1 1/16 Mile. Clm 75000n3L
#1/1A Entry (20/1) – Both of these four-year-olds are exiting poor performances, but have recent figures that make them competitive against this group. The Conductor will bet one of them wakes up at a big number.
Race 5: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 75000n4L
#6 Lucky Stash (6/1) – She ran the fastest last race in this field by a good margin last start at Parx. At that price that’s all the Conductor needs to see.
Race 6: 1 Mile. Clm 8000n1x
#7 General Bellamy (6/1) – This old man returned to form last start and ran a much-improved race. The Conductor will bet he’ll follow that effort up with another big one.
Race 7: 6 ½ Furlongs. Clm 16000n1x
#4 Buzzkillington (5/2) – His last race was much faster than the rest of this group’s and he has a hilarious name.
Race 8: 1 1/16 Mile. Clm 16000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #10 King Koa (12/1) – He rebounded with a solid efort last start and the Conductor sees him building off that. He has the back class and recent speed figures to give him every chance.
Race 9: 7 Furlongs. F.Alw 46000n2x
*Never a Doubt Week Starter Lock of the Day #7 Norma’s Charm (2/1) – She looks to be too good for this field.
Race 10: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 5000 n1x
#11 Rio Vista (10/1) – She ran a good 2nd at this level last start behind a heavy favorite. There are no standouts in this field to be worried about.
