Race 8 showcases a competitive group of three-year old and upward and promises to present a wide open betting affair. A field of eight will sprint seven panels under $16,000 NW1X conditions. Post time is scheduled for 4:06 PM.
LITIGANT (2) is the runner who could pull an upset at a square price. This five-year-old gelding from the Gerard Ochoa barn sports a record of four wins from seven starts at the tricky seven furlong distance. He also likes the Oldsmar oval, being five for ten in the money, including a trio of wins. He reunites with regular rider Ronald Ordonez, they had a pair of victories in Tampa last season. This one has a good turn of early foot and should be prominent from the onset. Worth a bet at 12/1 on the morning line.
THE BET $10 win and place on LITIGANT (2) and a $2 exacta box with MYSTIC LINK (3) and GRAN RUNNER (5). 2,3,5. Total Bet $32 GOOD LUCK!!
