War Correspondent tunes up for Grade 1 stakes


OLDSMAR, Fla. – The featured second race Friday at Tampa Bay Downs is likely to produce starters for the Grade 3 Tampa Bay Stakes on Feb. 11, but War Correspondent has his sights set on an even bigger prize scheduled for the same day. A good effort in Friday’s no-conditions, $27,500 allowance likely would propel him to the Grade 1 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap, a race in which he finished third in 2015.
