Today's play is in Race 4, $8,000 Claiming NW2L three year-old and up Fillies and Mares compete at eight and one-half furlongs on the main track. Post time is scheduled for 1:58 PM.
WICKED WITCH (2) gets her claiming tag cut in half today and appears to be in a good spot for the able Juan Avalia (18% winners at Tampa) barn.
This sophomore filly was a three length winner with $16,000 Maiden Claimers in her first try around two turns back on New Year's day. Since then, she has logged four off the board finishes against higher priced rivals. Improvement is expected as six-time Tampa champion Dan Centeno rides for the first time. An inviting bet at anywhere near the 8/1 morning line.
THE BET $10 to win on WICKED WITCH (2) and a $3 exacta box with JACKIES DREAM (8) and MALICED (3). 2,3,8. Total Bet $28.
PREVIOUS RESULTS 4/24 Had the win and exacta. $10 win bet returned $33, the exacta $30.40., a profit of $41.40 for the day. Bankroll is now plus $61.60.
