Tampa corrects stakes margin


Tampa Bay Downs has corrected the margin of victory Dreams of Angels was credited with following Saturday's Inaugural Stakes. The winning margin, first disseminated as 14 1/4 lengths, has been shortened to 6 1/2 lengths.

According to the track's publicist, Margo Flynn, the incorrect margin was the result of an "isolated incident of operator error" on the part of a racing official.

The chart of the Inaugural Stakes has been updated to reflect the new winning margin, as have the past performances of the 11 runners in the race.
