Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Wednesday, March 2

Preview: Looks like a warm up in the weather this week. There’s a 20% chance of rain on Wednesday and Friday so it looks like good week.

Race 3 – Tam

#3 The A Plan (5-1) 

This gelding is making his third race off the layoff and comes out of a key raced that has produced two winners of three starters. Also, jockey Fernando De La Cruz jumps on and he is 5-for-15 with trainer Ray Trisler at the meet.


Race 6 – Tam                

#2 Queen Fiddle (turf only) (15-1)

Another horse running third off the layoff. Trainer Anthony Pecoraro is 36% with horses making their second start on Lasix. Also Pecoraro was 36% with stretch outs at Tampa last year.

Just throw out that last try on the turf because the mare didn’t like it. Trainer Jason DaCosta is 30% going turf to dirt and 37% going from a route to a sprint. DaCosta is 17% with jockey Fernando De La Cruz at the meet.
