HAPPY NEW YEAR!
The Downs presents a ten race program today; the first Post time is scheduled for 12:14 PM.
Racing is held four days a week on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The season ends on Saturday, May 7.
There are nine events on tomorrow's card. First Post is scheduled for 12:14.
Today's play is in Race 7, Post time is 3:25. Four year-old and up Fillies and Mares will sprint six panels on the main track, under $12,500 Optional Claiming conditions.
BION MAGIC (1) is worth a bet at 6/1 on the Morning line. This five year-old Mare comes from the red hot Vinson barn, currently with three winners and a show from four starts (75%). She finished a decent third, only a head behind SUZIE'SSTEPPINOUT (4) going seven furlongs on November 27, against similar rivals as today.
BION MAGIC (1) has a good opportunity to upset this group. The turn-back to six furlongs can be to her benefit, as she may be leading in the stretch and SUZIE'SSTEPPINOUT (4) is a closer and could run out of real estate. Her last outing was her first try at Tampa and came off a fifty eight day freshening. Improvement is expected. Top jock Sammy Camacho was aboard last time and returns today.
THE BET: $20 win and place on BION MAGIC (1) and a $2 exacta box with SUZI'SSTEPPINOUT (4) and LADY JEAN (7).
Exacta Box: 1,4,7 Total Bet $52 GOOD LUCK !!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 12/31/21: Our choice won easily, but we missed the exacta. The winner was bet down to odds-on. But, a short price beats a long face.
The win and place bets returned $60, a profit of $8 for the day. The bankroll is now $1,084.20.
