Two special editions of Tampa Bay Today for the next two days as the Oldsmar track complies with Florida simulcast mandates.
In today’s turf sprint for maiden allowance types going 5 furlongs on the famed Tampa turf, we’ll see how a $35K maiden claiming event transfers to special-weighters up north. We think quite nicely, thank you.
The good news/bad news about the rider switch to Samy Camacho is that second-time starter Puppymonkeybaby (2-1) is the probability of an underlay with Camacho in the boot but the payoff is that he is likely to take advantage of the maiden’s upside.
In her downstate debut, she broke slowly, was tentatively handled on the backside, showed a good turn of foot to reach contention on the turn then raced greenly down the lane, swapping leads but kept finding late.
See the Tampa Bay Today Video for GULFSTREAM PARK, JUN 6, Race 3 and check it out for yourself. Adding to the confidence, trainer Sarah Nagle is a profitable 18% effective with second time starters.
We are betting to win at 8-5 or greater and will single her to begin the Late Pick 5.
If on Dirt: Exacta box McAllan’s Music (6-1), Duchess of Fury (8-1) and Puppymonkeybaby
