Chooo!!!!! Chooooooo!!!!! 10/1, 4/5 lock, 4/1 gullet shot, 7/5, and 4/5 winners yesterday along with a 27/1 shot finishing 2nd. That’s how you cap Conductor! The Conductor should probably stay at Gulfstream today, but Santa Anita is home. The trains in 5th gear, hold on tight, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Clm 25000n2L
#2 Chalky (8/1) – Her last race was heinous, but if you can forgive that effort she has multiple races that make her competitive against this weak field.
Race 2: 6 Furlongs. F.S.Mdn 55k
#1 Harper’s Gallop (4/1) – This filly’s dam is 1/1 producing a stakes winner and she’s working well. Carava surprised with a debut runner recently.
Race 3: 6½ Furlongs. (Turf) Mdn 55k
#6 Dimkar (4/1) – He was supposed to run down the hill last start, but the race got rained off the turf. He showed fast early pace figures on dirt and should improve in his 2nd start off a layoff.
Race 4: 6 Furlongs. MC 20000
#5 Race (4/1) – Trainer Tim Yakteem has won 3 of his last 4 races at the meet and the Conductor likes this gelding’s consistent work-tab.
Race 5: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.S.Mdn 55k
#6 Smoovie (5/2) – This filly will try routing for the first time and drops back in to face California breds again today.
Race 6: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 20000
#2 Sierra Sunrise (5/2) – She missed the break last start at Santa Anita, but the Conductor really liked her maiden breaker two races back. She’ll like the cutback as well.
Race 7: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 25000n2L
*Never a Doubt Bank Vault Lock of the Day #5 Candyman Garret (2/1) – 1st off the claim for Jeff Mulins this colt’s lone effort going 5 furlongs on the grass crushes this field.
Race 8: 1 Mile. (Turf) MC 50000
*Gullet Shot of the Day #10 Sir Andover (6/1) – He set a very hot pace at this level last start and still hung on for 3rd. With natural progression in his 3rd career start the Conductor loves his chances.
