Rain ruined yesterdays card for the Conductor, so he had more stews than god could handle yesterday. Time to get the train humming into the weekend, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 32000
#7 Proud ‘n’ Ready (5/1) – She gets back to the turf today, where she does her best running. Prat hops in the irons and she should have a pace advantage up close in a race without much pace.
Race 2: 6 ½ Furlongs. Clm 8000
#7 Boy Howdy (2/1) – Drawn well to the outside, this boy looks like he’s going to sit a perfect trip.
Race 3: 1 Mile. (Turf) OC 80000n1x
*Never a Doubt Friday Night Bottle Service Lock of the Day #1 Rijeka (8/5) – He’s the class of the field.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. S.MC 50000
#8 Call Strike (3/1) – This gelding drops to the claiming ranks for the first time. He’s run strong early pace figures against tougher and drawn well to the outside.
Race 5: 1 Mile. F.OC 40000n1x
#5 Harmony Victory (5/1) – She tried dirt for the first-time last start and blew away the competition. The Conductor will bet that’s what she’s wanted all along.
Race 6: 1 Mile. F.MC 40000
#5 True Validity (8/5) – This filly’s last race beats this field.
Race 7: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.OC 80000n1x
#1 Sold It (7/2) – She’s dropping out of graded stakes competition and gets back to the turf where she’s bred to be best. She has talent and potential and those are good traits, not bad.
Race 8: 1 Mile. Alw 57000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #6 Candy Cornell (5/1) – Stretching out for the first time, the Conductor thinks he’ll be better going longer and he’s already run solid speed figures sprinting. He has a shot to beat the heavy favorite #7 Solomini, and guarantees he’ll at least run 2nd.
Race 9: 6 ½ Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 35000n3L
#4 Buckys Pick (5/1) – He’s won twice down the hill vs much tougher and should be primed for a big one in his 2nd start off the layoff.
