Inkling Scratched from today’s Tampa Bay feature

HorseracingFLA Staff Report

Inkling, the likely favorite in today’s featured ninth race at Tampa Bay Downs, has been scratched with the reason listed as “veterinarian.“

The race is a $100,000 allowance/optional claimer at five furlongs on turf for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up. It has a $28,000 purse, and is now down to eight starters. Scheduled post time is 4:28 p.m.

The Australian-bred Inkling was scheduled to make her second U.S. start, both for trainer Wesley Ward.

With Inkling out, the likely favorites with trainers and jockeys listed, are: Rivzinthehouse (Larry Rivelli/E.T. Baird), Normandy Crossing (Joe Woodard/Pablo Morales) and Unseen (Dane Kobiskie/Manoel Cruz) are other top contenders.

We will have reports on Tampa Bay Downs this afternoon on our blog.

Inkling, a 4-year-old for U.S. racing purposes, won two of her six starts in Australia–racing mostly in stakes.

This past August, owner-breeder Peter Moran sold Inkling to U.S.-based Doug Painter in a transaction for which the price was not disclosed.

Inkling won her U.S. debut on Sept. 4 at Del Mar, at five furlongs on turf in a $62,500 optional claimer.
