Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Wednesday, Dec. 9

Jockeys and trainers are still sorting things out as this is just the fifth program of the new meet. Therefore, keep track of who is hot and who is not. Keep track of where the winning shippers are coming from and it might lead to big payoffs. Today’s card looks OK with the lowest field being seven in the sixth.


Race 4: #9 Dubious Bachelor (12-1)

Trainer Jason DaCosta is 36% with horses coming off a 46 to 90-day layoff and he is 33% with jockey Fernando De La Cruz. This gelding loves this track with an 8-2-2-1 record.


Race 7: #9 High Side (firm turf only) (3-1)

This gelding has been away since April but is 2-1-1-0 over with turf course. Trainer Gerald Aschinger is 21% with grass horses and 3-for-6 with jockey Ademar Santos, who must work a trip from the outside.
