Heavy rain showers visited the Tampa Bay area yesterday, leaving us with a good main track and no turf racing today.
Live racing is conducted in Oldsmar every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (except Easter) until closing day, May 7.
Today’s play is in RACE 8, Post time is 3:48 PM. Live RadioStPete.com coverage, including the call from track announcer Jason Beem, starts at 3:45.
A field of seven four year-olds and up will go six furlongs under $5,000 NW1y conditions.
CODETOWIN (6) appears to have an edge on his rivals, as this seven year-old drops in to face $5,000 company for the first time. His last outing was a decent third place finish versus $16,000 foes here, at today’s distance on December 18. He was claimed that day the Douglas Nunn barn (26% winners after a claim) and has been in the money in four of five off track trips. This one has turned in a trio of drills for the new connections. The final workout was a “bullet” five panels in 1:02 flat. Appears to be fit and ready.
THE BET $20 win and place on CODETOWIN (6) and a three horse exacta box with GEMO (5) and HOT AND HEAVY (3). 3,5,6 Total Bet $52 GOOD LUCK!
PREVIOUS RESULTS: 1/23/22 Lost $22, the bankroll is now $1,076.
