Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Wednesday, March 2

Preview: Looks like a warm up in the weather this week. There’s a 20% chance of rain on Wednesday and Friday so it looks like good week. We all know the top jockeys on the dirt but here are some riders that have been less than 10% on the main track: Pedro Monterrey Jr. (6-83), Keiber Coa (5-89), Huber Villa-Gomez (4-83), Gary Wales (4-65), Mike Allen (3-55) and Erick Rodriguez (3-43).

Race 3 – Tam

#3 The A Plan (5-1) 

This gelding is making his third race off the layoff and comes out of a key raced that has produced two winners of three starters. Also, jockey Fernando De La Cruz jumps on and he is 5-for-15 with trainer Ray Trisler at the meet.

==                              

Race 6 – Tam                

#2 Queen Fiddle (turf only) (15-1)

Another horse running third off the layoff. Trainer Anthony Pecoraro is 36% with horses making their second start on Lasix. Also Pecoraro was 36% with stretch outs at Tampa last year.

Race 9 – Tam

#1 Strollingintherain (5-2)

Just throw out that last try on the turf because the mare didn’t like it. Trainer Jason DaCosta is 30% going turf to dirt and 37% going from a route to a sprint. DaCosta is 17% with jockey Fernando De La Cruz at the meet.

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Friday, Feb. 5

Preview: They were back on the turf on Wednesday, There were 10 difference winning trainers while Antonio Gallardo and Ronnie Allen Jr. continued on a riding hot streak with two wins each.

Race 6: #3 Queen Fiddle (turf only) (6-1) 

This filly’s best race was on the turf and she returns to the green here for trainer Anthony Pecoraro, who is 30% with first-time Lasix. She’s a prep so expect a big effort with Ramon Feliciano aboard.   

==      

Race 8:  #9 Travel Required (15-1)      

This gelding is still looking for his first win on the turf, but he takes a drop in class into a straight claimer and gets jockey Manoel Cruz for trainer Michele Boyce.

== 

Race 9:  #3 Good Times Rambles (5-1)

This gelding has loved Tampa this winter, winning twice on the class rise. He moves up again as trainer Benny Feliciano claimed out of his last win and Feliciano is 4-for-8 first off the claim.

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Friday, Dec. 19

Race 2: #6 Kholberg (12-1)

Has been given two months off and trainer Anthony Pecoraro is 31% with horses off a layoff of 61-180 days. Jockey Brian Pedroza rode this 2-year-old at Delaware Park and the gelding has a good work over the surface.

==

Race 6: #3 Annamonarchos (turf only) (5-1)

This 4-year-old filly has a good third over the turf course for trainer Anthony Granitz. Needs to get into the race a little sooner and maybe that will happen with jockey Fernando De La Cruz, who rode her to her last win at Indiana Downs.
