Not an inspiring start to the racing week and the best race on the card is for $20K claimers on the turf which will be run under the threat of rain; so buyer be more than aware.
If performance figures are a measure, and they are, the Thoro-Graph figure earned by Jeha (5-2) in winning his turf debut is a layover. The only caution is that he is coming back on short rest.
But he is realistically spotted at this level following his maiden claiming win at the $30K level, Mike Dini is having a strong meet and and Daniel Centeno, after a slow start, is back to being his dominating self. We spotted with anything close to his last effort.
We’re taking Jeha straight, no price restrictions, but we have a horse to watch from two starts back that we’re featuring on the TAMPA BAY TODAY Video. Take a look and see what you think: TAMPA BAY, NOV 25, RACE 3.
Handsome Effort (10-1) made a very strong, catch-the-eye stretch run two back, but he appears to be slow in this spot and catch a second rider switch after maiden breaker beneath Camacho. Am using in exacta box with Jeha because he could be double his early line odds ante post.
