CIBELLI, PROCTOR TRAIN TWO WINNERS; CENTENO RIDES THREE TO VICTORY
OLDSMAR, Fla. (March 21, 2009) Conditioners Jane Cibelli and Tom Proctor saddled two winners each on the afternoon’s card, while leading rider Daniel Centeno booted home three winners to round out the eleven race program.
Cibelli got her first trip to the Winner’s Circle of the day with A Curious Lady. The five-year-old Montbrook mare was bred in Florida by owner Laurence Foggle and was ridden by Tampa Bay Downs’s second leading rider Rosemary Homeister, Jr. Cibelli struck again with High on Candy; the High Yield gelding carries the colors of owner Sullimar Stables and had the services of jockey Jose Velez, Jr.
Centeno won two more races today, giving him 107 victories through 69 days of racing at the Oldsmar oval; his next win came aboard Waitingfor Tonight, a Florida-bred daughter of Palance under the care of trainer Nabu Morales for owner Juan Arrigada. Centeno rounded out his hat trick with Gesundheit, a four-year-old Gone West colt conditioned by Bernell Rhone and owned by Will Carlson and Jerry Pint.
Racing resumes tomorrow, March 22 with a ten race card; there is a Pick 6 carryover of $8,093.83 and a High 5 carryover is $3,356.84.
