With a 60% chance of rain, lots of dirt races on the card and pickings are slim as one of the classiest races on the card is an optional $25,000 claimer for three-year-old fillies. We like the favorite in a six horse field but take heart.
The linemaker has made the recent maiden breaker Fan Fan (9-5) on the early line but the chances are she can drift upward as Gone to Cabo (5-2) is likely to be favored ante post. Why?
Well, off the top, do you think the crowd would back a recent maiden claiming winner over a filly shipping north from GP and dropping out of a stakes? I agree.
There are two reasons that give us confidence in the Kathleen O’Connell; the fact she enters the impressive open lengths quicker back quickly and protects her, finding an optional allowances rather than offer her for sale, even at a higher level.
Take a look at the effort and see if you are as confident as we are: Tampa Bay Today video on the homepage will show TAMPA BAY DOWNS, JAN 27, RACE 2. She really moved forward big tine with the addition of Lasix 18 days ago.
Taking Fan Fan to win at 2-1 or greater and an exacta box with Gone to Cabo.
