BAUER’S BETS: Fast & Firm, Triple Stakes at Tampa Today
Stakes action starts in Race 3 at 1:45 PM with the $125,000 Pasco Stakes for sophomores at seven furlongs.
NO GETTING OVER ME (4) is a good bet here. He has the home track advantage, winning a Maiden Special event by almost ten lengths and then running second in the Inaugural after a balky start. Logged a bullet 5 furlong work January 9, 1.00.4 breezing from the gate. All on the local dirt. His connections, Bennett and Camacho, have plans for this one.
THE BET: $10 to win on NO GETTING OVER ME (4) and a $2 exacta box with LIAM’S LUCKY CHARM (1) and ALBERT PARK (6). 1,4,6.
Total Bet $22.
Older Fillies and Mares will travel a mile and one-sixteenth in the $50,000 Wayward Lass Stakes, Post is 3:46 PM for Race 7.
CLASSIC FIT (6) gets class relief today, having faced graded stakes foes in her last four dirt races. Mike Stidham (30% winners) ships this one in from the Fairgrounds and Jesus Castenon rides. The last time this filly ran with company similar to today’s ($75,000 Stake at Gulfstream), she won.
THE BET $10 to win on CLASSIC FIT (6) and a $2 exacta box with TWEETING (1) and JEHOZACAT (5) 1,5,6. Total Bet $22
The Stakes finale, Race 9 at 4:50 PM is the $125,000 Gasparilla Stakes at seven panels for three year-old Fillies. This appears to be a wide open affair.
MO CITY (10) from the powerful Stidham outfit, appears to be a filly with a future. She was an impressive debut winner by five lengths over the Tampa track at six furlongs, today’s additional furlong should not be a problem. Pablo Morales (41% winners with Stidham in Tampa) has the return mount. Worked a bullet four furlongs in 47.3 on January 10. A lot to like at 8/1 morning line.
THE BET $10 to win on MO CITY (10) and a $2 exacta box with SWISS SKY DIVER (3) and
WE THE CLOUD (1) 1,3,10. Total Bet $22
GOOD LUCK !!
