Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Saturday, March 11

Race 1 – Tam
#8 Tempietto (7-2) ****
Our Eyes: This gelding has been moved to the Dennis Ward barn after trainer Jamie Ness began serving a 100-day suspension. Even effort last time at the level. Jockey Jose Ferrer takes over and he’s 38% with Ward at the meet.
