Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Sunday, March 13

Preview: The day after the Tampa Bay Derby, personally I thick tracks should be off the day after their big days, but what do I know. Chance (50%) of thunder showers in forecast so be careful. Some trainers you might want to avoid on the main track since they are under 10% for the meet are Michael Dini (3-32), Barbara McBride (3-47), John Simms (3-48), R. Gary Patrick (3-53) and Keith Nations (3-40).


Race 5 – Tam

#5 Caged (2-1) (turf only)

This gelding just missed at this level last time and trainer Derek Ryan is 24% with horses third off the layoff and good turf jockey Daniel Centeno stays aboard.  –


Race 9 – Tam

#8 Carmen’s Secret (8-1)

Trainer Dennis Ward is moving this filly up in class off a third place finish. Ward is 27% when he moves a horse up.


Race 10 – Tam              

#1 Woodford Pine (6-1) 

This gelding has been overmatch running at Belmont and Gulfstream Park. May have found its proper level here for trainer Kitty Cheeks, who is 20% with jockey Scott Spieth.
