Horses to Keep an eye out for:

Race 4- 3,6,7

Race 1: 6,7,1,2
6 -Dig it in going out for the Gerald Bennett Barn with Jose Garcia back aboard has a real good shot to win this race. Last Race they tried running back on the turf with jumping up to claimers of 10k, did not run god at all. I would throw that race out, here at Tampa bay downs on the first this horse has been 7 for 8 in the money, with always being right in the thick of things.
7- Something Bird ran a good race 1st time off the layoff over this track finishing 3rd by 4 1/2 lengths. I like the stretch out in distance as well as Lopez staying aboard.
1- Prison Padre- 2nd time off a 2-year layoff Has been in the money at this track as well as distance 3 out of 4 times. Have good workouts in the morning and should be more fit to run
2- Fast Fairy - 2nd time off the claim going out for the Gary Johnson barn. Turf to dirt with dropping back down to claimers of 8k. There is not a lot of speed in this race which I think Garcia will try and forwardly place this horse to possible go wire to wire. Lifetime Over track 1 for 2 in the money going the distance 1 for 1.
4- Happy Guy has finished 2nd three out of his last four races. with being in the money 3 out of 6 times over this track and 2 out of 4 going this distance. Butler stays aboard has a good shot to break his maiden here.
2- Just Shoot Already- Should be the speed of the race, stretching back out to 7 furlongs were two races back he finished 2nd by 3 1/2 lengths going this distance as well as the same class. 4 out of 6 in the money over this track and 3 for 3 in the money lifetime going distance.
7- Wiwza Man- Dropping down in class from maiden 16k to 10k today, as well as twitching surfaces and going turf to dirt here. Has not run good in the past over the dirt but if he can run the same races he did over his last 2 starts with buyers of 52 best in this field he should be able to beat this class no problem.
Race 3- 7,2,12
7 long shot - Saison 3rd time off the layoff with drop down in class as well as getting back on the turf and stretching back out to the preferred surface and distance. He is 4 for 5 in the money lifetime running on the turf. Butler stays aboard! (LONG SHOT OF THE DAY 20-1 MORNING LINE)
2- Lastfortinofamily- Last time outran a solid race for maiden 16 going 1 mile finishing 3rd by 2 in a half lengths. Gets rider change to CC LOPEZ! As well as stretch out in distance.
12- In Honor of Arite- This is another long shot i like in this race which i think he will like the stretch out in distance and has that closing racing style.
Race 4 - 3,6,7,2
3- Hopefull Growth This 3-year-old filly was purchased for 160k. Ships in from Gulfstream were she finished 2nd coming off a 9-month layoff before that. Great workouts in the morning Should be the horse to beat in this race.
6- Gogo Shoes I like this filly coming out of the Derek Ryan Barn. two races back over this track he won going away by 4 lengths with a 76 buyer figure. Then brings her over to Gulfstream to run in an OC 75K/ N1X-N. The barn has high hopes on this filly snd i think they are right and will see her run a nice race today.
7-- Judy's Way- This 3-year-old filly ran in some good races in past as well as a stake back in January. Getting back on the dirt here as well as cuts back in distance. Very dangerous
2- Bridge Dancer Turf to dirt with some speed 3 for 3 in the money over this surface. Should be right in the thick of things
1- Gets shipped in from New York and Trainer change from Robert Falcone to Ignacio Correas Barn. Hasn't run since last May. Good workouts in the morning and seeing a much easier class then seen in past but the big question mark is coming off a 1-year layoff.
4 - Clear as Day Won last time out for msw of 18k over this track. 3 for 4 in the money over this course and 3 for 3 in the money going the distance. Think they found the right spot for this horse. Suarez back aboard should be right in the thick of things.
5- Stormy D 4-year-old filly always shows up on race day coming off 73 buyers her last 3 starts! cutting back in distance to a mile where he's 3 for 5 in wins so far her lifetime
7- Fashion's Star (Ire) 1st time racing here in the united states as well as going out for Hall a Fame Trainer Claude Mcgaughey III. Good workouts in the morning
8 - Flightly Almighty(GB) 1st time running in the united states as well as 1st time out for the clement barn which has been red hot lately.
Race 6- 2,1,4,9,10
2- Circle Away Finished 2nd last time out with having a late surge at the end and not making it in time to win. Ran best buyer figure last time out with a 64. should be closing strong
1 (Long Shot)Upper Crown last 2 races have not been so good running against some of the same horses in this race but last race had the 9 holes with a 10 horse field and was 4 wide during the race. Has some speed if he gets off the rail in the front can be a nice long shot with Wales staying aboard.
4 Cpl Dionicio- Going out for the Gerald Bennett Barn won last time out by 3 lengths over the slop here. loves running at this track with being in the money 4 out of 4 times.
10- What a Hoot- Hopped coming out of the gate last time out which ended up coming back and still finishing 3rd. Should run much better today
9- Osvaldo ran a pretty good race last time out with a 59 buyer with Allen Jr aboard. Gets back aboard with horse running some good races think will run real good today!
Race 7 - 6,4,7,9
6- Dynaform is going to be really tough to beat in here won last time out when dropping in the first time for a tag. 3 out of 5 wins going this distance and 1 out of 2 in the money over this track. Going out for Micheal Stidham barn with Gallardo staying aboard - Pick of Day
4 - Masterio this 3 year lol is 2 for 4 lifetime in the money. Throw the last race out where it got taking off the turf 2 back finished 2nd by 1 1 3/4. Should becoming strong at the end and closing strong and be right in the thick of things.
7 Violator- Dropping down in class back o 20k claimers were he finished 4th by 3 1/2 lengths should be right in the thick of things.
9- High Heater- Has not a good last time out but throwing that race out and if horse bounces back will be right in the thick of things.
Race 8 - 8,2,6,9, 6
8- US ARMY CORPS- Ran nice race last time out which was 1st time off the layoff which got nipped at the wire running an 81 buyer. Will be a heavy favorite in this one going to be really tough to beat in this one.
2 - Food and Wine Very interested in seeing how this horse runs off the long layoff for the Thomas Proctor Barn. Good works in am
Micheal Stidham sending out 2 in this race 6 Fit For a King ran pretty well should step up and run well here. 9 The big Dreaming second horse he is sending out 1st time out which has some really nice works ships in from Fairgrounds should run well.
7 Curlin's Thrill going out first time for the Sweezey Barn after Grahm Motion trained him. Very curious to see how this one runs!
5 Safe and Sound Gets back on tuft were he is in the money 2 out of 2 times as well as 2 for 2 in the money over this track and 1 for 1 in the money over the distance.
