Tampa Bay Downs presents a ten-race program for Saturday, conditions are fast and firm. First Post time is scheduled for 12:15 PM.
The feature is Race 5, four year-olds and up will sprint five furlongs on the lawn, under $10,000 Claiming conditions. Post time is 2:27. RadioStPetewww.radiostpete.com online live coverage including legendary announcer Richard Grunder starts at 2:25.
R BOY BODE (8) appears to be a worthy favorite from the powerful Baxter outfit. His last (and only) local attempt at this trip resulted in a fourth place finish after setting the pace to the stretch in extremely fast fractions. He has won at five panels four times at other tracks. Samy Camacho, who is locked in a head to head stretch duel with Antonio Camacho has the return call. This five year-old gelding is the one to catch.
THE BET $25 to win on R BOY BODE (8) and a $5 exacta box with STRIKING HEIR (1) 1,5. Also, a $2 exacta box with those two and ARCHEVERIO (2). 1,2,5. Total Bet $47. GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 4/23 Lost $32, the bankroll is now $915.20, from the $1000. start.
