Esophagus Slice Saturday: The Conductor’s Plays at Santa Anita Park

5/2, 6/1, and 3/2 winners yesterday made it a positive one for the Conductor.  The lock of the day would have made it a great one, but that’s the game we play.

A 10-race card on this fine Saturday gives us another opportunity at glory.  Let’s Ride.

Race 1: 1 Mile (Turf) Clm 35000n3L

#7 Iron Alex (5/1) – The Conductor loves his steady improvement and recent form.  If his upward trend continues, he’ll win this race.

Race 2: 1 Mile. F.MC 50000

#2 Super Klaus (5/1) – Her speed figure came back faster than you would think in her debut on turf last start.  This race is wide open, and she will step forward against weaker competition today.

Race 3: 1 1/8 Mile. (Turf) MC 50000

#3 Aussie Fox (8/5) – His figures stand above this field.  If he doesn’t graduate today, he never will.

Race 4: 6 Furlongs. Clm 25000n2L

*Gullet Shot of the Day #4 Duke of Fallbrook (15/1) – The Conductor will take a swing in this spot. This gelding is plunging in class to a level where his figures make him competitive and he’s switching over to his preferred surface and distance. The Conductor will key him in the trifecta.

Race 5: 6 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 55k

Race 6: 6 ½ Furlongs. Alw 57000n1x

#5 Best Two Minutes (4/1) – He ran a good 2nd last start and looks as if he’s primed to run his best today.  His top form is better than this group.

#7 Popular Kid (7/2) – This gelding is in career form and the Conductor loves his workouts entering today.  His best will be tough to beat.
