Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Wednesday, Feb. 11

Race 2: #7 Cowgirl Spirit (7-2)

This filly takes a drop in class after a layoff since September. She has three wins at Tampa and is 2-for-2 at 5 ½ furlongs. Jockey Fernando De La Cruz has won on her in the past for trainer Jason Da Costa.

Race 8: #8 Double Check (5-1)

Trainer Chad Stewart drops this filly from the MSW ranks to the maiden claimers for the first time and he is 18% with that move. The daughter of Mach Ride gave an even effort in her debut and might show more speed in this spot.

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Friday, Feb. 6

Race 4: #4 Hank’ster (4-1)

Trainer Jason Da Costa is 28% at the meet and he decides to put blinkers on this son of Wildcat Heir, who finished sixth in this debut. Da Costa and jockey Fernando De la Cruz are looking for more speed as this 3-year-old drops his claiming price in half ($50,000 to $25,000).

Race 9: #1 Shaikha (turf only) (8-5)

This 5-year-old mare has been facing way tougher in New York and before that at Gulfstream Park. She has 7 runner-up finishes in 16 lifetime starts and might finally have found a class level she can win at. She has tactical speed and jockey Dyn Panell is 24% with trainer John Rigattieri.
