Tampa: 60-1 shot wins Pelican


Trainer Ronnie Allen continued to befuddle the bettors when Above the Wind posted an upset in the $60,000 Pelican Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs.

Above the Wind, the longest shot in a field of 13 that included an entry, returned $132.40 after turning back a determined bid from Secret Romeo to win by a length. The 6-year-old Above the Wind covered the six furlongs over a fast track in 1:10.89 while winning his 14th career race.

It was the second stakes upset of the meet for Allen, who sent out Tricks of Glory ($70) to take the Inaugural on opening day.
