Following a three-day break, Tampa Bay Downs resumes racing on Wednesday with nine races and first post of 12:45 p.m.
On the first race, there is a carryover of $9,936 on the Super High 5.
The bet requires picking the first five finishers in correct order with no consolation payoffs such as having the first four places.
There were no winning Super High 5 tickets in any of the last three races on Sunday, the most recent race day at Tampa Bay. Thus, there is an overnight carryover.
Bettors have had three days to handicap the first race with its carryover. Precedents at Tampa Bay and other tracks indicate that more than $20,000 could be added on the Super High 5 in the first race.
It is $1 minimum bet with an 18 percent takeout. Tampa Bay offers it on all races with seven or more starters.
The first race has seven entrants. It is a maiden claiming race at seven furlongs on dirt for fillies and mares 3-years-old and up. The purse is $12,200 and the claiming prices are $12,500 and $10,000.
