Weather handicappers seem unsure which way things will go but most agree there’s a good chance of thunderstorms in late afternoon, just in time for Tampa turf finale.
So, if the race is rescheduled to the main track, we say it will be Positive Impact (4-1), dropping into a claimer for the first time after being gelded and is bred both sides for wet. We believe that the pedigree is more wet than turf oriented.
We love all manner of Tampa grass races and are attracted here by the value being offered on Drama An Victory (8-1), who showed improvement despite a class rise following a loss and the tough trip that ensued.
See what we mean by checking the Tampa Bay Today Video on the homepage and you decide, Tampa RACE 9, MAY 20. After angling out sharply, he still managed to make ground, unusual at lower levels. The switch to veteran Ronnie Allen should help the colt’s late kick.
We’ll take Drama an Victory straight at 9-2 or greater, an exacta box with the newly blinkered Tithed (5-1), and will add Positive Impact to the exotics mix.
