Lock of the Day #5 Coliseum flopped in the Sham stakes, but 9/1 and 3/1 winners with a few other decent 2nds made it another positive day for the Conductor. Time to close out the weekend at Santa Anita in style, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 5 ½ Furlongs. S.MC 50000
#5 Centaurus Rule (5/1) – This gelding is working very well, and this is field is ripe for a first-time starter to pick off. He also gets a weight break against this group.
Race 2: 1 Mile. F.Alw 57000n1x
#3 Arctic Roll (6/1) – This filly broke her maiden last start and the Conductor loves her steady progression in her first 3 races. With another step forward today, she’ll have every chance.
Race 3: 6 Furlongs. F.MC 50000
*Never a Doubt High Class Lock of the Day #5 So Gucci (2/1) – She ran a solid 2nd in her debut and showed good early speed. Her workouts coming out of that race suggest that she’ll run even better today.
Race 4: 1 Mile. F.MC 30000
#4 Awepollonia (7/2) – She’s steadily progressing, and her last race was the fastest last race in the field on the Conductor’s numbers. This is a tepid group.
Race 5: 1 Mile. Clm 12500n2L
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Builder (8/1) – In his 3rd start off a layoff, he looks ready to run his best today. He has performances earlier this year that would beat this field.
Race 6: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.Alw 57000n1x
#9 Princess Roi (7/2) – She’s consistently running faster than this group, plain and simple.
Race 7: 1 Mile. OC 62500n2x
#9 All out Blitz (6/1) – This group is tightly bunched on numbers, but this colt has been running vs much tougher competition. The Conductor will send the linebackers and safety.
Race 8: 7 Furlongs. G2 Santa Ynez Stakes
#1 Mother Mother (9/5) – The Conductor really likes her last two starts at Santa Anita and she has loads of talent. The Conductor sees her exploding today.
Race 9: 6 Furlongs. F.Clm 16000n3L
#3 Christy Jackson (5/1) – She loves running 2nd, but is in the best form of her career and drops back into the claiming ranks today. She’ll be right there when they hit the wire.
