Be Here Now got there in time at 10/1 Sunday. Add in a little Fair Grounds pick 5 and train is in gear. It’s Florida Derby week at Gulfstream and the Conductor is already salivating over Saturday’s card. However, there is still work to be done before then. We need to collect during the week an there is plenty of Keeneland and NYRA prep to be done. Keep shoveling, Skip.
Race 4: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 35000n2L
#2 Musical Romance (8/1) – This filly was favored vs tougher in her last turf start and ran a good 3rd closing into a slow pace. She flopped on the synthetic last time, but the Conductor is ignoring that effort. They switch her back to turf today and she faces her weakest competition to date. She looks to get a favorable trip on the inside and up close to a slow pace. Saez sticking aboard after a poor effort last time is a positive sign too.
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. F.SAlw 54000n1x
The Mrs (3/1) – 5/2 would be more than fair on this filly. She’s paired up two races in a row at Gulfstream that likely beat this field and she cuts back a furlong to her best distance. She draws well to the outside and will get the jump on the favorite #1 Charlie’s Wish (2/1).
Race 8: 7½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Clm 20000b
*Gullet Shot of the Day #9 Lexinator (5/1) – Off a break last time, this mare ran well going a mile with a poor turf trip. She pressed the pace 3-wide and uncovered around both turns. She rightfully tired late and that race should set her up perfectly for today. Lexinator draws outside again, but without much speed to her inside the Conductor thinks she can get over to 2-path going into the first turn. She’ll take the lead turning for home and the shorter distance will help her chances.
