Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Wednesday, Jan. 18

Race 4 – Tam
#6 String Puppet (7-2) ****
Our Eyes: Trainer Bernell Rhone claimed this 4-year-old for himself and he puts jockey Dean Butler aboard. The gelding seems to hold a class edge here and cuts back from two turns to 7 furlongs.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 5 – Tam
#3 Cuban Cowboy (5-1) ****
Our Eyes: Another horse that is cutting back from two turns to one turn. Trainer Max Ubide is 31% making the move from a route to a sprint plus red hot jockey Edwin Gonzalez keeps the mount.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Race 8 – Tam
#10 Buch of Daisies (9-2) ****
Our Eyes: Trainer Efren Loza Jr. has parachuted in to Tampa with success in the past and he tries again here. He is 34% with horses off a 46-90 days.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EXBX 10-11-9.

Race 9 – Tam
#2 O K by Me (7-2) ****
Our Eyes: This mare runs at her lowest level ever and has been facing way better. Has early speed and now is in the barn of Kathleen O’Connell. Jockey Wilmer Garcia jumps on and he won three races one day over the weekend.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show.

Good luck.
