There are two stakes races, both dirt sprints for older horses, at Tampa Bay Downs this afternoon.
Internet station Radiostpete will carry track announcer Richard Grunder’s live call of each of those races.
The first of Saturday’s two stakes is the Pelican at six furlongs on dirt for 4-YO and up. It is the seventh race with scheduled post of 3:46 p.m.
The $50,000 Minaret is six furlongs on dirt for fillies and mares 4-YO and up. It is the ninth race, with scheduled post of 4:50 p.m.
Bob Bauer, HorseRacingFLA’s handicapper and associate editor for Tampa Bay, will preview both of those races during the post parade and then provide results and a recap after the race.
Radiostpete and HorseRacingFLA combine for that coverage of a “race of the day” each race day at the Oldsmar, Fla., thoroughbred track.
On days when Tampa Bay Downs has more than one stakes race, Radiostpete has live coverage of all of those races.
In an article to be run adjacent to this one, we will have our daily “Bob Bauer’s Bets” feature in which he will analyze the Pelican and the Minaret and provide his recommended bets for the two races.
