Tampa Bay Downs plans a 9 race-card on Wednesday, with the first post at 12:20 P.M.
A full field of ten colts and geldings are signed on to go a grassy mile in Race 5, under $16,000 NW2L conditions.
Scheduled Post time is 2:18 PM. Live coverage including the call from track announcer Jason Beam, starts at 2:15 p.m. on RadioStPete.com
This may be a wide-open betting affair, as all the runners are trying for a second win after breaking through their Maiden condition.
WHISKEY PLANK (1) has a good turn of early foot and figures to be prominent from the gate. He had the lead at the top of the stretch on November 27, in his first try on the local lawn. That outing was at eight and one-half furlongs, the turn-back to a flat mile today will be to his advantage.
Alonzo Quinonez, a promising young rider, takes the mount for the first time. He scored on the turf lately on a double digit longshot. Loose on the lead runners won a couple of events last week, look for that trend to continue when the situation permits.
THE BET $10 win and place on WHISKEY PLANK (1) and a $2 exacta box with ROSE FOR A SAINT (5) and JAMA DILLON (6): 1,5,6 Total Bet $32 GOOD LUCK!!
PREVIOUS RESULTS 12/11 Collected $42 on the $59 in wagers, a loss of $17 for the day. The bankroll is now $1087.60
