Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Sunday, Feb. 14

Preview: Not a bad card, especially after a big stakes day. Look for jockey Antonio Gallardo to break out of his slump soon. He’s too good of a jockey not to..


Race 2 – Tam: #4 Toastmaster (5-1) 

Trainer Darien Rodriguez is 41% first off the claim and he gets Antonio Gallardo to ride. They have teamed up for one winner at the meet.


Race 8: #6 Italian Charm (turf only) (9-2)

This 3-year-old has been idle since Saratoga. Trainer Christophe Clement adds Lasix and he’s 27% when he adds that. Red-hot jockey Daniel Centeno rides and he’s won once at the meet for Clement.


Race 10: #5 By a Hundredth (10-1) 

Trainer Graham Motion has had a lousy winter in both Florida and Southern California, but he has to break out of it sooner or later because he’s too good not to. This gelding is coming off a layoff and coming out of a key race that has produced three next out winners.
