Weather Impacting Tampa, Possibly Gulfstream

Bettors and horsemen will be monitoring the skies at both Florida thoroughbred tracks on Wednesday afternoon.

Thunderstorms are in the Accu Weather forecasts for Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach and for Tampa Bay Downs in Oldsmar.

We will have reports on the weather and on the racing on this blog.

Gulfstream has an 11-race card with first post of 12:35 p.m. Tampa Bay has a nine-race card with first post of 12:25 p.m.

Following morning rains, Tampa Bay has moved Wednesday’s seventh and ninth races from the turf to the dirt track that is listed as good.

As of 11:15 a.m., the fifth race is still set for turf which is listed as good. It is the day’s only other race scheduled for that surface.
