The Conductor’s Travers Preview

The 2019 Travers doesn’t have any superstars in the field and is a wide-open betting race on paper. The Conductor was going to do a full breakdown on all the contenders, but to him there is only one. He doesn’t like a horse in this year’s Travers, he loves one. He’s logging into his 401k right now to withdraw it all and back the caboose up to the windows.

#7 Mucho Gusto (6/1) – This race has absolutely no pace on paper. The lone Baffert runner in the field, this colt is really progressing late in the 3-year-old season and working well at Del Mar. He gave Maximum Security a Run for his money last start:

and can dictate his trip on the front end. In a field full of closers, Talamo can take him right to the front, or press the pace behind a lower quality horse that sends. He’ll open up as they turn for home and the late runners will have too much work to do. The Conductor will single Mucho Gusto in all his bets Saturday and Saratoga better be wearing its neck brace. The Conductor is going straight for the jugular.

Race 1: 5 ½ Furlongs. MC 40000

#6 Deckology (2/1) – The 3rd he ran in his debut last time will make him very tough to beat.

Race 2: 6 Furlongs. F.MC 20000

#4 Taylor Gals (5/1) – Her work three back catches the Conductor’s eye. It wouldn’t take much talent to surprise this group.

Race 3: 1 Mile. Clm 32000

#7 Rocko’s Wheel (5/2) -2nd off the layoff, a natural step forward will make him a winner.

Race 4: 1 1/16 Mile. (Turf) F.Alw 50000s

#6 Heathers Gray (4/1) – Lightly raced, she’s improved in each of her four lifetime starts. She’s posted three bullet works in a row and the Conductor sees her taking another step forward today.

Race 5: 6 Furlongs. MC S.50000

#5 Afternoon Heat (2/1) – He’s run two solid 2nd’s behind favorites to start her career. She’ll graduate today.

*Gullet Shot of the Day #7 Holly Hundy (8/1) – 2nd off the layoff, this filly drops in class and posted a bullet work entering today. She’s proven she can pass horses and looks to get a perfect trip in this spot, sitting behind a wicked pace.
