Santa Anita time, Let’s Ride.
Race 1: Race. (Turf) F.Mdn 50k
*Never a Doubt Friday Night Bottle Service Lock of the Day #6 She Be Striking (3/1) – Stretching out for first time, this filly looks like an absolute standout. Her first two starts were solid efforts running nice figures and narrowly missing. She’s proved she can pass horses, gets a jockey upgrade to Prat, trainer Richie Mandella is hot. She should like the added distance because of her breeding. She Be Winning.
Race 2: 5 ½ Furlongs. Alw 50000s
#8 I Am the Danger (9/5) – Breaking his maiden last start, he was very professional sitting behind the frontrunners and passing them with ease down the stretch. The rest in this field will be gunning for the early lead and he should get a perfect setup. The Conductor thinks we’ll get over 2/1 on him too.
Race 3: 1 Mile. (Turf) F.Mdn 50k
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Miss Voluptuous (6/1) – Drawn well to the inside, she’s bred for the grass and was a very solid work tab. Why would top jockey Flavien Prat be taking the mount for a trainer who is only 4% with 1st time starters this year? He knows this filly can run and so does the Conductor.
Race 4: 6 ½ Furlongs. F.Clm 16000n3L
#6 Belle Monte (4/1) – His last start at Santa Anita was the best of this bunch in the Conductor’s eye. He won comfortably and should be able to handle the step up in class today. He’s lightly raced and on the improve while most of the others are looking to find form.
Race 5: 1 Mile. OClm 40000
#5 Baby Frankie (5/2) – Dropping in class, his speed figures are the best of this bunch and he’s also by far the most consistent runner in this field. The ultimate equipment change (snip snip) and the addition of blinkers can also move him forward.
Race 6: 1 Mile. (Turf) Clm 25000n2L
#2 Jack and I (4/1) – This gelding continues to run higher numbers in each start and is dropping in class today. He’s also working well, shortens in distance and is drawn well to the inside.
Race 7: 1 Mile. F.MC 30000
#3 Divine Dharma (7/2) – She was hammered at Santa Anita at this level last time. Then she was slammed at the start and still ran 4th in a 12-horse field. The Conductor bets she gets a clean trip today and romps this field.
Race 8: 1 ¼ (Turf) OC 62500n2x
#6 Oscar Dominguez (5/2) – He won his last race and is in good form. Additionally, he’s proven he can handle this distance while the others in here are not. 1 ¼ Mile is a long way.
