Friday's nine race card begins the weekend racing action in Oldsmar. Conditions are fast on the main track. The turf course remains closed for the second racing day, due to heavy rain on Thursday, January 27. The first Post time is scheduled for 12:15 PM.
Tampa Bay Downs has live racing every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (except Easter), until closing on May 7.
RACE 5, Post time 2:13, is today's feature. A very competitive group of sophomore Fillies will go a mile and one-sixteenth on the main track (off turf) under $32,000 Maiden Claiming conditions.
Live coverage on RadioStPete.com, including the call from announcer Jason Beem starts at 2:10.
SIGN AND SEAL (3) from the top tier Graham Motion barn is the one to catch. It appears she has an early pace advantage and might get loose on the lead as she gets blinkers on for the first time here. Hector Diaz Jr. (25% winners with Motion) retains the mount.
