It’s taken a few weeks to get the site up and running, but we should full boar from here on out. There are some quality races at Parx today. The Conductor will ride the rails down to Philly on this beautiful Saturday and hammer this stakes pick 3 for more money than god. The Conductor sees kill shots all over the place, Let’s Ride.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. Grade 3 Gallant Bob Stakes
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Seven Trumpets (12/1) – The Conductor is only using two horses in this race and both are juicy prices. This colt ran his lifetime best in the Allen Jerkins last out, running a solid second behind Promises Fulfilled. He has always wanted to sprint and the cutback in distance at Parx last time was what he needed. He’s been working like a champion leading up to today. He’s poised for a monster performance.
Backup Throat Slit #7 War Giant (8/1) – This race doesn’t have a ton of early pace for a graded stakes sprint and this boy is the speed of the speed. Drawn well to the outside, he should be able to clear to the front and will be very dangerous as they turn for home.
Race 10: 1 1/16 Mile. F. Grade 1 Cotillion Stakes
Stone Cold Lock #2 Monomoy Girl (3/5) – She’s clearly the class of this field and she should get a perfect trip in this one without a lot of speed signed on. The Conductor doesn’t see her getting beat at Parx today, but there is one horse in here he thinks has the potential.
Backup Throat Slit #5 SeparationofPowers (10/1) – This filly ran a massive in the G1 Test last out closing into a slow pace and getting the victory. She’s stretching out in distance today, but the Conductor doesn’t see that as an issue. Her win in the Frizette last year was as fast as Monomoy Girl has ever run. She’ll sit a good trip up close to the pace and will have every chance with a step forward.
Race 11: 1 1/8 Mile. G1 Pennsylvania Derby Grade I
*Double Down Esophagus Shot of the Day #3 Instilled Regard (15/1) – The Conductor has always liked this colt. He was running solid races closing in behind the likes of Justify. We last saw him in the Derby, where he ran a good 4th and since then he has moved into Chad Brown’s barn. The Conductor sees him running a career best as a fresh 3-year-old and he will be very dangerous.
Most Likely Winner #8 McKinzie (5/2) – This was Bobby Baffert’s Derby horse before an injury sidelined him until today. He is training well, and the Conductor sees him as the one to beat. This race at Parx doesn’t have a lot of pace and he will be able to dictate his own trip on or near the lead. If he’s an improved racehorse this race is over. However, there are enough question marks where the Conductor will use a few others.
Backup Throat Slit #7 Mr Freeze (12-1) – The Conductor would love Dale Romans to have a big day today. This colt will be over looked coming from Mountaineer, but his last victory was extremely impressive pulling away by 8. This colt wants to run all day and has enough early speed to make him very dangerous. A repeat effort of his last race gives him a shot, let alone another move forward.
