Handicapper Bauer Starts with Six-Win Day  

HorseRacingFLA Staff Report

Bob Bauer picked six winners in the eleven races at Tampa Bay Downs on Saturday, his first day as handicapper for HorseRacingFLA.

Bob is a veteran handicapper, a former racing writer for the St. Petersburg Times and a former publicist at Tampa Bay Downs.

Every Saturday, we publish Bob’s selections for Win, Place and Show in each race at Tampa Bay Downs.   They are in the Handicapping link on the tool bar of the home page of this Web site

We are tracking his picks to win, assuming a $2 Win bet in each race.

This past Saturday, Bob’s recommended $22 in bets would have paid $26.80.  That is a 22 percent return on investment.

Here are Bob’s winners for Saturday Jan. 21.  Program numbers are in parentheses followed by $2 win price.

First Race – Sonoma Crush (4)  $2.60

Fourth Race – I Cat (10)    $7.20

Fifth Race – Chesapeake Spring (11)   $4.00

Ninth Race – R Angel Katelyn (7)   $4.00
Tenth Race – Earring (4)

Eleventh Race – Tiz Samurai (5)   $6.40

All   six of those winners were the favorites.

Starting this Saturday Jan. 28, HorseRacingFLA  editor Jim Freer will handicap each Saturday’s card at  Gulfstream Park—with Win, Place, Show picks on each race.
