Tax Time in Tampa

Interesting turf feature for 3YO fillies at Tampa Bay featuring all manner of recent graduates or other more experienced or class tested. We won't take a short price in this lineup.

It was an exceptional performance that got Originator (2-1) to win on debut far back early followed by a wide sweep and drawing off score.

And Ian Wilkes don't wrap them tightly for their first runs. No telling how good, but we won't pay to find out; not at a short price going longer over a more demanding surface.

But we will pay to find out more about April Fifteenth who showed stark improvement in second start to break maiden despite running like a snake through the lane. Hails from prolific turn mare and from top turf connections. Odds of 4-1 would be fair.

Taking April Fifteenth to win and boxing the exacta with the favorite.
