Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Wednesday, Jan. 20

Preview: Hopefully Tampa returns to the turf after two off the turf days last week. Jockey Fernando De La Cruz won seven times last week and some at big prices. Trainer Kathleen O’Connell stays hot as do the Bennett Boys (Gerald and Dale).


Race 6 – Tam

#3 Felt in Pocket (turf only) (4-1) 

This filly finished third in her Tampa turf debut for trainer Eoin Harty, who also owns her. Leading jockey Antonio Gallardo takes over in the saddle.


Race 8 – Tam                

#4 Ruffolo (turf only) (8-1) 

This gelding broke his maiden last time and now moves up in class, which can be tough, but the red hot Fernando De La Cruz keeps the mount for trainer Michele Boyce and they are 40% together.


Race 10 – Tam              

#6 Showersofblessings (6-1) 

This mare has been training well for her return and it’s that combo again of jockey Fernando De la Cruz and trainer Michele Boyce.
