Tampa Bay Downs: Nine Races on Friday's Card; Six Florida Cup Stakes Races on Sunday

 By Bob Bauer

Tampa Bay Downs has a nine-race card on Friday, with first post scheduled for 3:17 PM.

 A full field of three year-olds and up will go a grassy mile and one-sixteenth in Race 7, under $16,000 NW2L Claiming conditions. Scheduled Post time is 3:17 PM. RadioStPete online live coverage including legendary race caller Richard Grunder starts at 3:15.

FLEETRIDGE (8) is kind of runner to favor in this situation. He is the only one here dropping into a condition Claiming race for the first time. All the others have tried this condition several times without success, or are moving up after a Maiden win. This son of GHOSTZAPPER has had one try on turf with $32,00 Optional Claiming foes, today he faces $16,000 company. Gets first Lasix and should be a decent price at 4/1 on the Morning line.

THE BET  $10 win and place on FLEETRIDGE (8) and a $2 exacta box with AGRIPINO (1) and MR. WHO (10) 1,8,10  Total Bet $32  GOOD LUCK!!

PREVIOUS RESULTS  3/24  Lost $32, the bankroll is $782.90, from a start of $1,000. 

NOTE: On Sunday, Tampa Bay Downs will have its annual Florida Cup Day with six stakes races restricted to Florida-breds.

First post will be 12:00  p.m. for  a 12-race card.

RadioStPete, in  conjunction with HorseRacingFLA, will carry Grunder's live  calls on all six stakes races.  Bob Bauer, HRFLA handicapper, will have pre-race and post race analysis on the  six stakes.

We will have previews on Saturday.
