Tampa Bay Downs has a nine-race card on Wednesday.
Our feature is Race 4, with post time scheduled for 2:12 PM. It presents a group of $16,000 sophomore Maiden claimers seeking to graduate at a mile on the lawn. Live coverage on RadioStPete will start at 2:10.
UNIDENTIFIED MAN (8), from the powerful Tom Proctor barn, has a class advantage today, dropping down from a pair of races vs. $32,000 rivals on the Tampa turf. The first of these, a good place finish, was at todays eight furlong distance. A repeat of that effort can put this gelding in the Winner's circle. Ace turf rider Jesus Castenon, aboard for both Tampa trips, retains the mount.
THE BET $25 to win on UNIDENTIFIED MAN (8) and a $2 exacta box with STAYIN OR STRAYIN (1) and TOP BOMB (6) 1,6,8 Total Bet $37 GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 1/17 Had the win and the exacta, $20 win bet returned $62. $3 exacta gave back $16.80, a profit of $40.80 on the $38 total bet. The bankroll is now $921.10
