Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Wednesday, Feb. 3

Preview: Let’s hope the bad weather is done in Tampa as there was only one day with turf racing last week. Ronnie Allen Jr. led all jockeys last week with six winners and followed closely by Antonio Gallardo, who had five.


Race 5: 7 Apache Queen (turf only) (6-1)

This filly drops out of a Gulfstream Park MSW that has produced four next out winners. She will be trying turf and two turns for the first time, but she is dropping in class and gets leading rider Antonio Gallardo.


Race 6:  #3 Fionetta (3-1)     

This speedy mare has won her only career races over this track. She will stay at the same level but gets a cut back in distance and keeps leading jockey Antonio Gallardo for trainer Dale Bennett.


Race 8: #6 Classic Blaze (5-1)          

Trainer Victor Carrasco Jr., who is 26% first off the claim, claimed this gelding last time and now takes him off the turf and runs him in an elongated sprint. This one should be plenty fit and jockey Jose Garcia is 11% with Carrasco.
