Today's play comes in Race 7, Post time is scheduled for 3:50 PM. Three year olds and up will go a grassy mile under NW2L $16,000 Claiming conditions. Live coverage on RadioStPete online begins at 3:48.
UGLY DUCKLING (7) is worth a bet at 12/1 on the morning line. This sophomore gelding has been rested since winning a Maiden claimer on the green at Belterra Park on September 16th. This five furlong romp was his first turf attempt and it appears he may like the stretch to a mile. He finished up that day with a powerful closing move and owns the best late pace figure here. Newbie jock Roberto Alvarado Jr, who has given a good account of himself in his first Tampa season (20% winners) rides for veteran trainer Tim Hamm.
THE BET $10 Win and Place on UGLY DUCKLING (7) and a $2 exacta box with MOUNTAIN HOLIDAY (10) and ARMONDO'S TEAM (1) 1,7,10. Total Bet $32 GOOD LUCK !!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 12/20 Lost $32, the bankroll is $1029.
