Tampa: Friday update

Email

We're already a couple of races into the 10-race Friday card at Tampa Bay Downs, and the weather is a little warmer than over the past couple of days (high to hit 64), but still not up to "Florida" par. Worth noting that there's a carryover of nearly $45k into the $2 pick 6 (races 5-10), and surely more than a few fans will be singling the comebacking class horse, Schoolyard Dreams (#8 in the 8th), who faces 7 other older horses going 7 panels. If he somehow gets beat, things could really get interesting here, carryover-wise, over the weekend, when twin 3yo stakes, the Gasparilla and Pasco, serve as Saturday features.

Fast track, firm turf. Here are the remaining changes on the program:

Race 3 - SCR #9 Slew City Storm

Race 5 - SCR all the AE's (# 11 thru 14)

Race 6 - SCR #2 My Silverdiva

Race 7 - SCR #5 Between Raindrops

Race 8 - SCR #1A(p.o.e.) My Charming Clyde

Race 9 - SCR #3 Indian Ashton

Race 10 - SCR #8 Beneath the Crown
