As stated in our Tampa Bay Today analysis, there is a chance with Independence Hall taking steps to Louisville, and his first start around two turn, he appears vulnerable to a sharp, in-form rival.
We’ll stay with the upset theme and try to upend the mighty Got Stormy (4-5) Andina Del Sur (7-2). That Gulfstream invader has recency, is racing in top form, has the field’s best record at the trip but, most significantly, her maiden breaking score came right here on the Oldsmar grass.
Our hope is that the connections abandon her recent close-up style and take her back, making the last run the one that counts. Those were the tactics used for her maiden breaker–with Julien Leparoux in the boot. Today, Jose Ortiz get the call.
We’taking Andina Del Sur to win at 3-1 or greater, an exacta box with the Grade 1-winning filly, and we’re adding sharp, course-loving Jehozacat (10-1) to the exacta and exotics mix.
