Preview: The chance of thunderstorms was 80% for today’s races so I didn’t even look at the grass races, all four of them, since I doubt if they get run on that surface. Trainer Robert Raymond won two races on Wednesday and might be heating up.
Race 6: #9 Zach’s Image (6-1): Trainer Monte Thomas is 20% overall with first-time starters and he was 44% last year at Tampa Bay Downs with an average mutuel of $32. We won’t get that, but this gelding has a good work coming into the race.
Race 8: #8 Media Rules (9-2): The only time this filly ran at 5 1/2 furlongs she won and that’s what she gets here in her 2016 comeback race. Jockey Fernando De La Cruz and trainer Jason DaCosta are at 15% combination.
