Etc. . . .


Tampa Bay Downs ended its 93-day meet Sunday with double-digit gains in attendance and handle, as all-sources handle averaged $3,166,051 per day, an increase of 24 percent, and attendance was up 10 percent to 3,151 per day. Lynn Scace won the trainers' title and Jesus Castanon narrowly defeated Terry Houghton for leading rider. . . . Jockey Caesar Bisono will be sidelined four to six weeks with a fractured right wrist and broken right leg sustained when his mount, Convey to Me, broke down at the quarter pole in a five-furlong turf race Saturday at Bay Meadows. . . . Suffolk Downs canceled its Wednesday card, the fourth day of the current meet, because of a lack of entries. Suffolk also has asked the Massachusetts State Racing Commission to postpone its May 11 card and to reschedule both days later in the meet.
