First post is 12:42 p.m. for Wednesday's nine-race card at Tampa Bay Downs.
Today's play is in Race 6, Post time is scheduled for 3:16 PM. Four year-olds and up will sprint seven panels on the main track under $12,500 Optional Claiming condition. Live coverage starts at 3:14 PM on Internet station RadioStPete.
Forward Motion was a wire to wire winner on New Years day under Samy Camacho vs. similar foes as he will face today. He worked a bullet 35.2 on January 15 and then followed that with a 35. flat move on January 21. This six year-old Gelding appears to be in lifetime best form and a huge effort is expected. He has a pair of victories at today's distance from three attempts, Camacho retains the mount.
THE BET Gonna send it in, $100 to win on FORWARD MOTION (5). Total Bet $100. GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 1/24 Lost $22, the bankroll is now $790.10.
