By Bob Bauer
First post is 12:20 p.m. for the Friday nine-race card at Tampa Bay Downs. Conditions are listed as Fast and Firm.
Today’s play is in Race 5, Post time is scheduled for 2:18 PM. A well-matched group of three year olds and up will contest eight and one half furlongs on the lawn under $32,000 NW2X Optional Claiming conditions. Live coverage on RadioStPete starts at 2:16 PM.
QUALITY STEP (5) has been idle since bossing a field similar to these back on October 12th at Indiana Downs. This four-year old gelding earned a huge figure that day and a repeat of that form could win here, his record is 3-3-1 from 11 starts on the Tampa turf. Veteran trainer Keith Nations has shown the ability to get runners ready off a break. Alonzo Quinonez, who rode this one to a pair of in the money finishes last season, returns here.
THE BET $10 to win on QUALITY STEP (5) and a $3 exacta box with WINDRACER (1) and AND WON (6). 1,5,6. Total Bet $28 GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 12/2 Had the winner and the exacta. The $20 win bet paid 78.00, the $2 exacta $63.00, a profit of $109 for the day, The bankroll is now $1122.
