BAUER’S BETS: Fast & Firm at Tampa
MAD GRACE (9) was unlucky in her last outing, rearing at the start and unseating leading rider Antonio Gallardo. Both were uninjured. Prior to that she had finished in the money three consecutive times on turf and won an off the turf route in her last start. Gallardo rides again, they can make amends today with a good beginning.
THE BET $20 to win on MAD GRACE (9) and a $2 exacta box with SHE’S DYNOMITE (10) and PAINTED IMAGE (1) 1,9,10. Total Bet $32.
