Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Friday, March 24

Preview: Not sure what the condition of the turf course will be as rain was possible on Thursday. Check for changes. Daniel Centeno and Edwin Gonzalez continue to ride well.

Race 2 – Tam
#4 Phenix (8-1) ****
Our Eyes: Trainer Jason DaCosta is 40% when he moves a horse from a sprint to a route back to a sprint like this filly. Throw out the last race and look for improvement here.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EX 2-3 with 4.

Race 5 – Tam
#1 Johnny Bear (6-1) TURF ONLY ****
Our Eyes: Trainer Ashlee Brnjas is 39% when going from dirt to turf. She is 29% with jockey Pablo Morales. Interesting race.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EX 3-4-6 with 1.

Race 6 – Tam
#2 Bright Blue (30-1) ***
Our Eyes: Trainer Juan Gotera took over training and this gelding has been improved. The 5-year-old is coming out of a key race that has produced three winners. Jockey Samy Camacho is 3-for-7 with Gotera at the meet at big odds.
Jeff’s Playbook: 3 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EX all with 2.

Race 7 – Tam
#8 United Song (10-1) ***
Our Eyes: Like we’ve said before jockey Daniel Centeno doesn’t have to ride every race so this first-time starter must be live and at these odds worth a shot.
Jeff’s Playbook: 3 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EX 4-6-7 with 8.

Race 9 – Tam
#7 Unfazed (7-2) ****
Our Eyes: Trainer Arnaud Delacour has a pair in here and no doubt Centeno had is choice and takes this 4-year-old filly which finished second in her first race off the layoff. Delacour is 22% second off the layoff and 26% with Centeno.
Jeff’s Playbook: 4 units to win, 5 units to place and 6 units to show. EXBX 7-4 (both Delacour)

Good luck.
