Speed Not Holding on Turf at Tampa Bay

Schoolofhardrocks edged Ruffolo in  the sixth at Tampa, in a one mile turf allowance/optional  claimer for older males.

The $1 exacta paid $24.10.  

Both horses stalked the pace.  Speed also did not hold for the fourth race at 1 1/16 on turf.

Maybe that's an omen for upcoming Florida Oaks (Grade 3), the eighth at 1 1/16 on turf for 3-YO fillies, and the Hillsborough (Grade 2), the tenth at 1 1/8 on turf for fillies & mares 4-YO and up.
