Because of recent rains the fifth, seventh nd eighth races have ben taken off  the turf   at Tampa Bay Downs.

 Today's play is in Race 5, a mile and forty yards on the main track (originally carded for turf) for $25,000 Maiden Claimers, four years old and up. Post time is scheduled for 2:21 PM. RadioStPete coverage including the live call from legendary announcer Richard Grunder will start at 2:19.

Luckily, (we hope) the choice RAG TAG (7), has shown ability on both running surfaces. He was a good second here on December 9, only missing by a nose at six and one half furlongs vs. Maiden Special company. He drops to face Claiming rivals for the first time today, trainer Eoin Harty wins at a 20% clip with this angle. Veteran rider Jesus Castanon has the return call.

THE BET   $50 to win on RAG TAG (7) and a $2 exacta box with A.K.SAFARI (4) and STARSHIP BUTLER (8) 4,7,8. Total Bet $62  GOOD LUCK!!

PREVIOUS RESULTS  2/17  Had the chalky winner and exacta. Collected $34 on the $20 win bet and $7 on the $2 exacta. The bankroll is $672.50.
