Tampa Bay Downs has live Thoroughbred racing every Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (except Easter), until closing day May 7.
The play for today is in RACE 9. Post time for the nightcap is 4:18 PM. A full field of older Fillies and Mares will go eight and one-half grassy furlongs, under $16,000 NW3L conditions.
Complete coverage on RadioStPete.com, including the call from announcer Jason Beem, starts at 4:15.
SLIME QUEEN (5) is well spotted here and is due for a wake up today. She drops in to face $16,000 company after running with $25,000 and $32,000 rivals in her last trio of attempts, with very quick pace fractions. This Mare gets class relief and ace turf rider Pablo Morales takes the mount for trainer Jon Arnett (21% winners in claiming races), improvement is expected. This is her best chance to score since coming to the Downs at the start of the season.
