The lock of the day hit early yesterday, and the Conductor handed out the ice cold late double that paid 18/1. Time to double down at Santa Anita, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 6½ Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 50000
#5 Flip the Coin Jan (4/1) – He has two wins down the hill and the cutback works all the time on this turf course.
Race 2: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.Clm 20000
#2 Queen Carmelita (10/1) – She has strong early pace figures and is in good form. That’s a great recipe in these claiming races.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 25000
#7 Sturdy One (7/2) – Making her third start off a layoff, she’s drawn well to the outside and loves Santa Anita. Last time she was at this level she dominated.
Race 4: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.75K Blue Norther Stakes
*Never a Doubt Sunday NFL Losing Bets Bailout Lock of the Day #1 Lady Prancelot (5/2) – She gets back to a firm turf course today and is working well. She’ll get a perfect setup with lots of speed signed on in here.
Race 5: 1 Mile. Clm 16000n3L
#5 Elwood J (9/2) – He’s been facing much tougher and the Conductor always bets on this horse, so he will do so again.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.Mdn 55k
#4 Free Belief (5/1) – When Prat teams up with Hollandorfer, you must take notice. This filly’s sire wins 16% with debut runners.
Race 7: 6 ½ Furlongs. MC 16000
#Artie B Good (4/1) – The Conductor was very impressed by this boy’s last race. Nothing creative.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 62500n2x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Pulpit Rider (6/1) – She showed a thunderous late kick last start and is steadily progressing. She’s 3/5 at this distance.
Race 9: 6½ Furlongs. F.Alw 57000n1x
#3 Uppercut (5/1) – She’s been sidelined since May, but she’s run well against graded stakes company. Additionally, she ran a big figure in her debut. She has talent and is also working well at Santa Anita.
Race 10: 6½ Furlongs. (Turf) F.Mdn 55k
#9 Unicorn (6/1) – Prat doesn’t hop aboard 1st time starters that can’t run. Plus she has mythical powers.
*Disclaimer: The Conductor had too many stews last night and these picks may not be held against him in the court of law.
