Racing conditions continue to be ideal as we approach Festival Day on Saturday March 10. This promises to be the biggest day in the history of the Oldsmar oval. Five Stakes are on the card, Including The Grade 2 Tampa Bay Derby. Total purse values will surpass $1,000,000.
Today's play is in the Race 4. INCREASED SCRUTINY (4) looks to be ready to graduate today. This four-year-old lass is lightly raced (2 tries vs. better at Belmont and Gulfstream) and ships in for top turf conditioner Chad Brown.
The Downs leading rider Antonio Gallardo will take the mount. She turned a big figure in her debut at Belmont, anything close to that should get it done. THE BET: $25 to win on INCREASED SCRUTINY at 2-1 or better. If not, play a $5 part wheel with SILLY FACTOR (1), CROWNED PRINCESS (2), CRITICAL HUMOR (3), RYOAN (4) and LOOKING AT BEAUTY (6)
in Race 5. 4 with 1,2,3,4,6. Total Bet $25 GOOD LUCK
