Golden Sabre looks to fire fresh again in optional claimer


OLDSMAR, Fla. – Saturday is the biggest day of the meet at Tampa Bay Downs, with the Grade 2 Tampa Bay Derby headlining a card with four stakes races. But the track still carded a solid feature for Friday’s 10-race program, a fourth-level optional $100,000 claimer in which Grade 3 stakes winner Golden Sabre will make his 2016 debut. The one-mile turf race drew a field of nine older horses.
