Horse racing, Tampa Bay Downs

Tampa Bay Downs opinions for Sunday, Jan. 11

Race 2: #6 Mindfulness (6-1)

This 6-year-old mare is making her third start off the layoff for trainer Rory Barron, who is 42% with horses going from turf to dirt. She has been in the money 8-of-11 on a fast dirt track. Huber Villa-Gomez jumps back on.


Race 7: #4 Framed (5-1)

Our Eyes: This 8-year-old returns to the shedrow of trainer Wayne Minnock, who is 29% in route races. Leading jockey Antonio Gallardo jumps aboard this horse, which is coming out of a key race that has produced three winners so far.


Race 9: #1 Favorite Ketch (10-1)

Our Eyes: Trainer Jane Cibelli is pulling out all of the stops here trying to get this gelding back on the winning path. She putting blinkers on (30% move), going from turf to dirt (33%), dropping in class and going from Gulfstream Park to Tampa.
