A compact, but competitive field of a half dozen four year-old and up sprinters will go six and one- half furlongs on the main track in Race 5. Post time for this $32,000 NW2X Optional Claiming event is scheduled for 2:28 PM.
RUFFOLO (6) is the choice as this gelding makes his first start of the season in Oldsmar with only five racing days left. He boasts a record of four wins from six starts at Tampa Bay Downs and has been on the grounds since early March, logging nine works (including two bullets) for trainer Michele Boyce. He likes to run fresh and has earned a pair of victories and a place on dirt tracks after a layoff. Might be sitting on a huge effort today.
THE BET $10 to win on RUFFOLO (6) and a $3 exacta box with SMALL FORTUNE (2) and STORM ADVISORY (5) 2,5,6. Total Bet $28
PREVIOUS RESULTS 6/15 Lost $22, the bankroll is now plus $168.00.
