Today's feature is Race 5, six and one-half furlongs on the main track for $25,000 Optional
Claiming older Fillies and Mares. Post time is 2:48 PM.
Miami shipper DAY BY DAY (5) should be the chalk, (6/5 on the morning line) she appears to be fast enough to win here. However, she has never gone more than six panels and never raced in Oldsmar. Might be vulnerable at a short price.
SUZIE'S STEPPINOUT (1) likes the Tampa track, having a record of eleven in the money finishes from thirteen starts, including four wins. She is the only runner here having a victory at this tricky distance. Figures to have a good closing set-up to nail the speed. Veteran Ron Allen Jr. returns for trainer Maria Bowersock.
THE BET $10 to win on SUZIE'S STEPPINOUT (1) and a $5 exacta box with DAY BY DAY (5) 1,5 and a $2 exacta box with those two and CAUGHT UP IN YOU (7). 1,5,7. Total Bet $32.
