Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint, Skip.
Race 5: 5 Furlongs. (Turf) G1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint
#1 Totally Boss (5/1) – This gelding is in great form, but the Conductor can’t see him getting any kind of trip from the rail. He got a brutal draw for a closer in a turf sprint.
*#2 Pure Sensation (5/1) – Any runner that can be on the lead turning for home must be used in here and he’s the most likely to do so. The Conductor gives him the best chance to win.
#3 Imprimis (8/1) – He’s disappointed since returning from Ascot in June. The Conductor is leaning against him.
#4 Shekky Shebaz (12/1) – He’s become a different animal in the Servis barn (shocker). The Conductor will absolutely be using him.
#5 Stubbins (12/1) – He’s steadily progressing and hasn’t run a bad race sprinting on the turf, but he’ll be too far back early for the Conductor’s liking.
#6 Stormy Liberal (8/1) – This old man’s best days are behind him. He’s not close to the same horse who won this race last year.
#7 Leinster (8/1)
The Conductor doesn’t like the runners from Woodford race he’s exiting.
#8 Legends of War (20/1) – He’s too slow.
#9 Final Frontier (6/1) – This colt’s last race came back very fast on paper. The Conductor must include him.
#10 Eddie Haskel (9/2) – The Conductor is torn on this gelding. Can he win? Yes. But the Conductor is leaning toss at the price he’ll likely be and his last two efforts.
*11 Om (15/1) – He’ll be the Conductor’s key in the exacta and trifecta. He’s a warrior and the Conductor liked his last victory over a solid runner in #1 Totally Boss. He gets back to his home track here, is working well and will be flying late.
#12 Belvoir Bay (12/1) – She gets a tough draw and is her best down the hill. She’s not as good on the flat.
