There are nine races on the Sunday card as the the four day racing week draws to a close. Tampa Bay Downs has live racing every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (except Easter) until closing day on May 7.
Today's play is in Race 9. The nightcap features a full field of sprinters (four year old and up) going five grassy furlongs under $32,000 NW2X conditions.
Post time is 4:21, live coverage on RadioStPete.com, including the call from track announcer Jason Beem starts at 4:18.
This is a well matched group and the outcome may hinge on the trip a horse and jockey work out at this sometimes tricky distance.
JAZZY TIMES (10) is in a good spot in the outside post. This veteran gelding returns here, second race after being moved to the Steve Cahill outfit and taking a short hiatus. He ran big in his comeback on December 1 on the local lawn, closing stoutly to miss by only a neck. Red hot Pablo Morales (24% winners) gets aboard for the first time. Trainer Cahill wins at a 30% clip with new stock. Expect a huge effort today.
THE BET $10 to win on JAZZY TIMES (10) and a $2 three-horse exacta box with that one and OCEANIC (1) and FOX ROX (4) 1,4,10. Total Bet $22 GOOD LUCK!
