Preview: Not the number of horses we are used to seeing on a Saturday card here, but there is some quality and trainers might be pointing for next weekend’s huge card.
Race 3 – Tam
#1 Lake Drive South (9-2)
As we have said before trainer Kathleen O’Connell has had a good meet and this horse has loved this track in the past with three wins in seven tries. He’s coming off a layoff but think he can come out winging.
Race 4 — Tam
#3 Persian Poet
Trainer Horacio Barbaran and jockey Samy Camacho have hit with two $100-plus horses in recent weeks, including one on Friday. Both horses showed nothing in their PPs just like this colt and it’s probably worth $2 across the board to find out.
Race 9 – Tam
#5 Liar’s Smoker (10-1) (turf only)
This filly is coming off a win over the course for trainer Gerald Aschinger, who is 21% with grass horses. Jockey Mike Allen has won twice with this filly at the meet.
Race 10 – Tam
#7 Winter d’Amour (4-1)
Trainer Anthony Granitz has been 30% in the past on the Tampa main track going two turns. This filly did just that breaking her maiden in Indiana and now she gets to do it again.
