Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Friday, Jan. 2

Race 6: #5 Throckmorton (turf only) (5-2)

This son of War Chant was favored in his last two at Belmont Park and couldn’t get the job done. Trainer Arnaud Delacour ships down here for some class relief. The gelding comes out of a race that has produced three next out winners.


Race 8: #1 A Rosefor Isabelle (8-1)

Trainer Gerald Bennett seems to be pulling oput all of the stops for this daughter of Hard Spun’s career debut. He has the leading rider, Antonio Gallardo, on board and he’s going with first time Lasix. Bennett is 26% with firsters.


Race 9: #11 Free Flowing (20-1)

This 5-year-old showed some speed after two months off in his first race of the season here. Gets a big jockey switch to Victor Lebron and that last race has produced three next out winners.
