Today's Tampa feature comes in Race 8, Post time is scheduled for 4:08 PM. RadioStPete live coverage, including the call from announcer Jason Beam will start at 4:05.
A full field of ten three year-old and up Fillies and Mares will travel a flat mile on the lawn under $27,000 NW1X conditions. It appears that this will be a good betting race, with the money spread around on several contenders.
WHY NOT TONITE (10) tries the Tampa turf coming off a handy three length score over $16,000 condition claiming foes at Monmouth on September 5. She has been away from the races since then, but has been busy in the mornings, logging a half dozen works. The last pair were promising local efforts. Five furlongs in a "bullet" 1:01 flat, followed by four panels in a snappy 47.2. Trainer Jesus Cruz claimed her and wins at 24% after a claim. Top tier turf jock Jose Ferrer rode her in her last victory and returns today. He is riding in top form now, going 3 for 5 on opening day. Alot to like here at 8/1 on the morning line.
