Conditions are Fast and Firm for Friday's nine-race card at Tampa Bay Downs.
Our race of the day is the sixth race with post time scheduled for 3:15 p.m. It features a competitive field of older Fillies and Mares sprinting seven panels on the main track under $32,000 Optional Claiming conditions. Live coverage on RadioStPete online will start at 3:13.
BAYDAR (4) was a daylight winner at today's distance in her Tampa debut on January 10 for the red-hot (19% winners) Jon Arnett barn. She takes a rise in class here, but appears to be in top form now and a repeat of her last race would put her in the winner's circle again. Winning rider Roberto Alvarado Jr. retains the mount.
THE BET $10 to win on BAYDAR (4) and a $5 exacta box with WE MISS SUZIE (5) and ALL GOOD TIMES (6) 4,5,6, Total Bet $40 GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 1/27 Tough beat, our good thing ran second. Lost $100, the bankroll is now $690.10.
