Wind Pipe Whack Wednesday: The Conductor’s Plays at Gulfstream Park

4/1 and 6/5 winners along with 14/1 Gullet shot of the day running 2nd made it a profitable Tuesday at the Fair Grounds. The train heads off to Gulfstream today for our regularly scheduled programming mid-week. Last Wednesday the Conductor made us some loot.  Let’s double down, Let’s Ride.

Race 1: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) F.MC 20000

#5 Miss Claudia (8/1) – She took money in her debut and showed good early speed in a race taken off the turf.  She’s bred to take a big step forward on the grass.

Race 2: 1 Mile. Clm 6250n2L

#4 Interlaken (3/1) – Dropping to this level last start, he ran a good 2nd behind a blowout winner closing into a slow pace.  This race doesn’t have any pace either, but there aren’t any good horses either.

*Never a Doubt Humpday Lock #7 Lillie’s Heat (5/2) – She was nailed after setting a hot pace last start at this level. She’ll appreciate shortening to a mile.

Race 7: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) Clm 30000n2L

#2 Shanghai Noon (5/1) – He was bumped at the start and still rallied to be beaten only 3 ½ lengths. He’ll have every chance with a clean trip.
