Tampa Bay Downs has nine races on tap for Wednesday. First post is scheduled for 12:15 PM. Conditions are fast and good.
Today's play is in Race 5, Post 3:17. RadioStPete online live coverage, including legendary announcer Richard Grunder will start at 3:15.
A wide-open field of older Fillies and Mares will go a mile on the lawn under $16,000 Starter Allowance conditions.
There is a racetrack saying "beware of the stranger" and we have SENSIBLE MYTH (4) shipping in and trying the Tampa turf for the first time. This six-year old Mare was a Stakes winner during the summer of 2020. She went to the Fairgrounds in January, catching a pair of events that were rained off the grass. She finally got back were she belongs on March 13, finishing third at a mile with foes similar to these. Jose Ferrer, a veteran grass rider takes the mount. She has beaten better in the past and may be ready for a huge effort here.
THE BET $10 to win on SENSIBLE MYTH (4) and a $2 exacta box with ANTALYA (3) and CATS OUT THE BAG (5) 3,4,5. Total Bet $22 GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 4/11 Racing was cancelled due to severe weather. The bankroll remains at $701.50 after starting ar $1,000.
