Tampa Bay Downs: Grantitz selects easier path for Laser Cat


OLDSMAR, Fla. – With the $100,000 Lightning City Stakes coming up next weekend, trainer Tony Granitz had to weigh his options for Laser Cat, a fast turf sprinter who has won 2 of 3 lifetime starts. Ultimately, Granitz decided to pass the stakes and run his 4-year-old filly against optional-claiming company Saturday. Laser Cat will most likely be favored against nine rivals in the about five-furlong grass race.
