Following rain earlier in the weekend, Tampa Bay Downs has moved all of Sunday’s scheduled-for-turf races to the dirt track that is listed as Fast.
Tampa Bay Downs will again be racing with no spectators, and thus no live on-track betting.
It has done that each race day since March 18 as part of its effort to comply with government guidances on limiting the number of persons at public events during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Bob Bauer’s Bet for Sunday
Race 6 presents a group of fast sophomore Fillies sprinting five furlongs on the main track, originally carded for the the turf. Post time for this dash, under $75,000 NW1X Optional Claiming conditions is scheduled for 3:15 PM.
BUCKY’S DRAMA (8) was the original choice and remains so, as she has a good turn of foot on the grass, but also won her last race on dirt at today’s distance. She figures to take the lead out of the gate under Centeno and might not get caught. The six-time Tampa leading rider rode this Filly to a close second by a neck finish at five panels on the grass, should go well here.
THE BET $10 to win on BUCKY’S DRAMA (8) and a $3 exacta box with MALIBEAUTY (9) and HALFINTHEWRAPPER(6) 6,8,9. Total Bet $28
