Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Saturday, Jan. 2

Preview: Plenty of horses entered on this card with a field of eight being the smallest. Watch jockey Jose Ferrer because he’s having a good meet.


Race 3: #9 Eddie G (5-1)

This gelding tried to go wire-to-wire in his comeback and faded. He should be fitter in this spot. Jockey Mike Allen is 20% with trainer Dennis Ward.


Race 5:  #6 Guchi Gold (8-1)

Trainer Gerald Bennett is off to a fast start at the meet with 9 wins. This mare comes out of a race that has produced three winners and jockey Daniel Centeno, who is 26% with Bennett, jumps on.


Race 7: #8 Morning Buzz (9-2)

This gelding drops into a maiden claimer for the first time and comes out of a Churchill race where the first two returnees have won. Trainer Ian Wilkes does well with sprinters at this track.
