Tampa’s New Year’s Racing Saturday

HAPPY NEW YEAR! The Downs presents a ten race program, the first Post time is scheduled for 12:14 PM.

Racing is held four days a week on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The season ends on Saturday, May 7.

There are nine events on tomorrow’s card. First Post is scheduled for 12:14.

Today’s play is in Race 7, Post time is 3:25 pm. Four year-old and up Fillies and Mares will sprint six panels on the main track, under $12,500 Optional Claiming conditions.

BION MAGIC (1) is worth a bet at 6/1 on the Morning line. This five year-old Mare comes from the red hot Vinson barn, currently with three winners and a show from four starts (75%). She finished a decent third, only a head behind SUZIE’SSTEPPINOUT (4) going seven furlongs on November 27, against similar rivals as today.

BION MAGIC (1) has a good opportunity to upset this group. The turn-back to six furlongs can be to her benefit, as she may be leading in the stretch and SUZIE’SSTEPPINOUT (4) is a closer and could run out of real estate. Her last outing was her first try at Tampa and came off a fifty eight day freshening. Improvement is expected. Top jock Sammy Camacho was aboard last time and returns today.

THE BET:  $20 win and place on BION MAGIC (1) and a $2 exacta box with SUZI’SSTEPPINOUT (4) and LADY JEAN (7)

 1,4,7 Exacta Box   :   Total Bet:  $52 GOOD LUCK !!

PREVIOUS RESULTS  12/31  Our choice won easily, but we missed the exacta. The winner was bet down to odds-on. But, a short price beats a long face. The win and place bets returned $60, a profit of $8 for the day. The bankroll is now $1,084.20.
