Tampa Turf Test Races on Tap

The sixth and eighth races are coming up at Tampa Bay Downs. 

They are the first legs of the Tampa Turf Test. It is an annual series of four races for males 3-years-old and up four races for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up.

All races in the series are not claiming races.  They are restricted to horses that ran for a claiming price of $16,000 or less at least once during 2015 or 2016.

Both races today are one-mile with purses of $19,500.

The sixth race goes to the males and the eighth race is strictly for the girls.

In the sixth race pay attention to I’m the Lucky One, who had three first place finishes in a row, one second and a fourth place finish in his last five races.

Also take a look at  Lighthouse Sound who had two first place finishes, one second place, and one third place finish in his last four races.

As for the eighth race, Sequiota might be familiar.  She is most likely going to be a favorite because she has four wins, a second and a third in eight turf races at Tampa Bay Downs.

Awalkinthemoonlite should put forth a good show having all top three finishes in her last six races.
