Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Friday, Feb. 26

Preview: They were off the turf on Wednesday and all but one race on Thursday, so we’re hoping it dries out in time for today’s card. Here’s a list a trainers you might think about leaving out of your selections until they show signs of life: .Robert Boileau (2-58), Peter Wasiluk Jr. (1-71), Horacio Barbaran (1-54), Charles Harvatt (1-44), Ian Hemingway (1-43) and Hernan Parra (0-44). That’s 6-314 or 2% winners. If they beat you, they beat you.


Race 1 – Tam

#2 Holy Day (5-1)

This mare is getting a few changes in order to get back to the winner’s circle. She is returning to the dirt and trainer Rasharn Creque takes over and he is 37% the first time he starts a horse.


Race 7 – Tam                

#6 Travel Required (10-1) 

Trainer Michele Boyce has had a good meet (22%) and we take it as a good sign she didn’t drop this gelding in class off a pair of so-so efforts.


Race 9 – Tam

#4 Fiesta Rose (5-1) 

Dennis Ward is another trainer with decent numbers at the meet (16%) and he drops this filly off a poor effort. She is 8-2-3-0 over this track so let’s hope of a rebound in this spot.
