Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Sunday, Jan. 31

Preview: Not a great card as the fields are smaller than usual and there are just nine races.


Race 4: 11 Skiffs Brewmeister (6-1)

This gelding has the top Brisnet class rating but has two problems here: he must draw into the race and he will have an outside post if he does. Still, the due of jockey Antonio Gallardo and trainer Kathleen O’Connell have won at a 37% clip over the last 60 days.


Race 6: #3 Break the Silence (4-1)

Trainer G. Ray Trisler is having his best meet in years at Tampa with seven victories. Jockey Fernando De La Cruz is 4-for-6 with Trisler. This gelding is coming off a maiden claiming win and showed speed and might try the same tactics against winners.


Race 9: #3 Bluesville (turf only) (5-2)    

Trainer Kathleen O’Connell has had a huge meet and she was forced to run this mare on the main track last time after the race came off the turf. This mare is dropping in class and should be ready for a big effort under jockey Jose Ferrer.
