With Gallardo Serving Two-Day Suspension, Camacho Has Chance to Expand Lead in Wins

Antonio Gallardo is not riding on Wednesday or on Friday because he is serving a suspension for what Tampa Bay Downs stewards determined was an infraction in a recent race.

That will give Samy Camacho a chance to expand his lead in victories in the Tampa Bay jockey standings.

Camacho has ridden 43 winners and Gallardo has ridden 42. Daniel Centeno is in third place with 24 wins.

Camacho has eight mounts on Wednesday's nine-race card, which has first post of 12:42 p.m. 

Tampa Bay does not have racing on Thursdays.  Camacho is listed on six mounts on Friday.

Wednesday is the 35th day of Tampa Bay's 90-day meet.

Entries will be drawn on Wednesday afternoon for Saturday's races, when Gallardo is scheduled to resume riding. He has ridden 1,997 winners in North America.

Gallardo finished first in  wins at Tampa Bay's 2019-2020 meet. Camacho finished first in wins at the Tampa Bay  2018-2019 meet.
