BAUER’S BETS: Fast & Firm at Tampa
Today’s play is in Race 7, $16,000 Maiden Claimers (four and upward) go a mile on the lawn. Post time is 3:45 PM.
MIKE MIKE (3) has a good chance to graduate under regular rider Huber Villa-Gomez. This four year-old gelding appears to be the lone early speed in this field and might pull off a wire to wire theft. He faced $40,000 rivals in the last race and returns to the $16,000 level today.
THE BET $10 to win on MIKE MIKE (3) and a $5 exacta box with MR. MAURICE (1) 1,3 also a $2 exacta box with those two and PAPA RALPH J (8) 1,3,8. Total Bet $32. GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 2/2 The win bet ran second by a nose, but we had $3 on the $25 exacta. The total bet was $38, the exacta was worth $37.50, a loss of fifty cents on the day. Bankroll is now minus $76.90.
