Four year-olds and up sprint five furlongs on the green under $16,000 NW1X Optional Claiming conditions in Race 7. Post time is 3:45 PM.
I'M CARDINAL (1) tries the Tampa turf and makes his first start since moving to the powerful Bennett barn after his last race on November 9. He has early foot and the inside post should help. This one likes this trip on the lawn, having scored four victories in Miami and has won after a layoff. Might take some catching under Alonzo Quinonez.
THE BET $10 to win on I'M CARDINAL (1) and a $3 exacta box with MIDNIGHT BLUE NOTE (9) and PHILOSOPHY (10). 1,9,10. Total Bet $28 GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 2/9 Another tough beat. The win bet just missed, but the $3 exacta returned $27.30, a loss of 70 cents for the day. The bankroll in minus $263.70.
