Tampa Opener Won By 6-1 Shot

Sophia Sky, at 6-1, caught the 8-5 favorite Nina's Patience in deep stretch to win Thursday's first race at Tampa Bay Downs.

The Oldsmar, Fla., track has an  eight-race  card on the first day of its two-day Summer Festival  of  Racing. Skies are  clear, and conditions are fast for the dirt and firm on the turf.

Sophia Sky won the five furlong race by 1 3/4 lengths in 57.43 seconds.  It was a $16,000 maiden claiming race, with a $13,000 purse, for fillies and  mares 3-years-old and up.

Keiber Rengifo rode Sophia Sky for trainer Stacy  Lane Hendry.
