Not the best card but at least there are seven or more horses in all of the races. First five-day racing week so you might see fields go down a little bit.
Added note: No picks for Friday Feb. 19 at Tampa or Santa Anita. I had an eye procedure on Tuesday and still pretty swollen. Sorry.
Race 4 – Tam
#10 Catskill Flyer (9-2)
Trainer Barbara McBride is 42% when she drops a horse two or more class levels like she is doing here. This filly has the top Brisnet class rating and best last race speed rating.
Race 5 – Tam
#3 Replay (turf only) (9-2)
This gelding just missed last time out when he drew an outside post. He draws inside today so Ronnie Allen Jr. should be able to get a better position. Trainer Chad Stewart is 24% with horses off a 46-90-day layoff.
Race 8 – Tam
#7 Icatiro (3-1)
Trainer Efren Loza Jr. has the well-documented stat of winning 42% of his first-time starters and he’s better on dirt and in maiden claimers. Leading jockey Antonio Gallardo gets the ride and he’s 3-for-3 with Loza at the meet.
