Tampa Bay: Preview of 6th, Turf Classic

Here's a preview of today's sixth race at Tampa Bay.

It is the $75,000 Turf Classic at 1 1/8 miles for Florida-breds 4-YO and up.

Go Around, trained by Bill Mott, is graded stakes placed at this distance and coming off a fast gate to wire win at 1 1/16 at Gulfstream. Antonio Gallardo will ride.

Fundamental, trained by Chad Brown, also is graded stakes placed at this distance.  Old Time Hockey, trained by Tom Proctor, won this race last year under Ronald Allen Jr., who has the return mount.

The consistent Manchurian High also must be considered.  Allie's Event could hit the board at a price.  He has won three in a  row on the Tampa turf, but is stepping up in class.

Predictions (program numbers in parentheses):
1 --Go Around (8)
2  --Fundamental (4)
3  -- Old Time Hockey (6)

--Jim Freer
