The rain came and off the turf made Saratoga unplayable yesterday. The forecast says its going to hold off today, so the Conductor capped as such. If the races come off, the Conductor won’t play with the small fields (He probably still will). At Del Mar, the Conductor’s 5/2 lock of the day was victorious, but his price horses are still haven’t finished. Now excuse the Conductor as he goes to play in a scramble. Fore! Let’s Ride.
Race 1: 7 Furlongs. Alw 60000n1x
#6 After You (7/2) – The California sprinters are always dangerous coming to the east coast.
Race 2: 5½ Furlongs. Mdn 75k
#6 Justintimeforwine (5/1) – Making his 2nd career start, he was well bet in his debut and had some trouble early. Rosario isn’t jumping off, so neither will the Conductor.

#3 Fierce Lady (1/2) – Her debut was dominant.
Race 4: 1 3/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) OC 25000n1x
#3 Channel Island (10/1) – This colt will have no problem getting the distance and the Conductor loved his fight last time, sticking his neck out to give the Conductor some loot.
Race 5: 5½ Furlongs. (Turf) S.Mdn 78k
#4 Barleewon (5/2) – Rosario hops aboard for a 20% debut turf winning trainer. The Conductor also likes this colt’s work tab.

Race 8: 1 1/8 Mile. (Inner Turf) OC 80000n1x
*Gullet Shot of the Day #5 Shootin the Breeze (8/1) – He keeps getting slow paces to close into, he looks to get a fair setup today and will appreciate the added distance.
Race 9: 1 1/8 Mile. OC 62500n2x
#7 Flowers For Lisa (5/1) – 2nd off the layoff at Saratoga, this old man has an early pace edge over the field and can carry his speed a long way. He’s won 4 of his last 7 and is proven at the distance.

#3 High Jingo (4/1) – Shortening back to 5 ½ furlongs 3rd off the the layoff, her early pace figures are lightening.
