The Conductor’s going for bombs today…..Let’s See if Parx can handle these prices.
2:13pm ET Race 5: 1m70yds. Clm 12500n4L
#3 Gotta Get Away (9/2) -This gelding ran on a fast dirt track for the first time in his 21-race career and ran a career best speed figure. It was also a higher figure than any of these others’ last race. He’ll get a fast dirt track at Parx again today and the Conductor will bet it’s exactly what he’s been looking for all along.
2:40pm ET Race 6: 6 Furlongs. Clm 7500n1y
#5 Yourdreamsormine (12/1) – Setting a brutally fast pace in his last start vs tougher, he understandably faded badly down the stretch. His early pace figures give him an early lead in this one and this group is much weaker. The lead will be dangerous and trainer Miguel Penaloza is hitting at a 23% clip with a gaudy +$3.14 ROI with runners 2nd start off the claim this year.
#9 Red Dragon Tattoo (6/1) – He’s taking an even bigger class drop and has been forced to run on a sloppy track in his last four starts. He hasn’t gotten a fast track since April. He has multiple past performances that would beat this group on a fast track. The Conductor sees him returning to form today over his preferred surface.
3:07pm ET Race 7: 1 Mile. F.Clm 25000n2L
#1 Shanghai Tootsie (10/1) – She broke her maiden in her first start routing last time. Although that figure came back low, her previous performances in California make her competitive in here. The rail post is winning at an 18% clip in routes this meet and the Haddock/Velasquez jockey/trainer combo has won 3 of their last 7 starts.
#3 Sugar Included (15/1) – She’s had some time out since her last start at Parx, which was very poor. However, she takes a big class drop today and her races at Churchill Downs make her competitive in here. Trainer Juan Serey is also 24% with a +$3.06 ROI with runners 2nd start off the claim this year.
3:34pm ET Race 8: 6 Furlongs. F.S.Alw 39000b
#2 Promised Storm (12/1) – Lightly raced, she has the most potential in this inconsistent group. She holds the fastest speed figure in this field with her maiden breaker three starts back. Her last two efforts have been ok, but have been over a good surface. She’ll get back to a fast track today, shortens a furlong and has a major chance at a big number.
