My Tampa Bay Downs picks and tips for today follow bellow. Post time for the first race on Wednesday is 12:50 PM (EDT).

RACE 1

  • Post Time: 12:50 PM
  • Purse: $20,000
  • Type: MAIDEN SPECIAL WEIGHT
  • Distance: 6-1/2 furlongs
  • Conditions: For Maidens, Three Years Old And Upward

Race 1 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Tench, S Spieth, 7/5
  • 2 O Danny Boy, G Wales, 20/1
  • 3 Accessible, T B Mejia, 2/1
  • 4 Excellent Mark, J C Ferrer, 20/1
  • 5 Impressive Speed, SCRATCHED
  • 6 Elusive Edge, D Centeno, 3/1

Race 1 Prediction and Pick

While the third-favored (3/1) Elusive Edge, with Daniel Centeno in the irons, may give some strong competition, I like the odds-on favorite here at 7/5: Tench, with Scott Spieth aboard. Tench has proven himself with four money finishes in five career starts, while Elusive Edge has yet to log a start. Additionally, Tench’s starting this race from pole position should offset any unnoticed advantages Elusive Edge might have.

Race 1 Tip

At 20/1, you might consider a show bet on Excellent Mark, ridden by Jose Ferrer. While this four-year-old colt has only one career start (no money finish), he has had mostly fast breezes in recent workouts.

Pick
  • Tench
    7/5

RACE 7

  • Post Time: 4:04 PM
  • Purse: $14,000
  • Type: CLAIMING
  • Distance: 6 furlongs
  • Conditions: For Fillies And Mares Three Years Old And Upward Which Have Never Won Two Races

Race 7 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 True Atka, J J Urdaneta, 20/1
  • 2 Pemaquid Dot, A A Gallardo, 12/1
  • 3 La Belle de Course, D Centeno, 3/1
  • 4 Andrea’s Worry, D Delgado, 9/2
  • 5 Forgotten Peace, P Morales, 4/1
  • 6 Flaming Indy, R D Allen, Jr., 6/1
  • 7 My Sister’s Keeper, T B Mejia, 9/2
  • 8 Hifalutin, S Spieth, 7/2

Race 7 Prediction and Pick

I like the third-favored (4/1) Forgotten Peace, with Pablo Morales aboard, in this claiming race. This four-year-old filly has two money finishes in three career starts, one of them a win.

Race 7 Tip

It’s possible the undervalued (12/1 moneyline) Pemaquid Dot, under the guidance of Antonio Gallardo, could provide a surprise in this race. Gallardo is the winningest jockey in this race, and Pemaquid Dot has a solid record: three money finishes in five career starts, with one of them a win.

Pick
  • Forgotten Peace
    4/1

RACE 8

  • Post Time: 4:37 PM
  • Purse: $17,000
  • Type: STARTER ALLOWANCE
  • Distance: 1 mile (turf)
  • Conditions: For Fillies And Mares Four Years Old And Upward Which Have Started For A Claiming Price Of $16,000 Or Less In 2019-2020. If deemed inadvisable by management to run this race over the turf course, it will be run on the main track at One Mile and Forty Yards

Race 8 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Stormy D, P Morales, 6/1
  • 2 Marmalade, A A Gallardo, 9/2
  • 3 Monkey Mind, R Mena, 4/1
  • 4 Ashley’s Rose, N G Goodwin, 30/1
  • 5 Sundrenched, T B Mejia, 12/1
  • 6 Elusive Ryder, SCRATCHED
  • 7 Glam, A Suarez, 4/1
  • 8 Native Lion, D Centeno, 3/1
  • 9 I Dream of Lois, SCRATCHED

Also Eligibles:

  • 10 Itsgottabemyway (MTO), A Suarez, 6/1

Race 8 Prediction and Pick

I’m going with the fourth-favored (9/2) Marmalade in this race. This seven-year-old mare may be old enough to be racing against her granddaughters, but she has a solid record of 36 money finishes in 53 career starts, with 17 of those wins—and she has Antonio Gallardo in the irons.

Race 8 Tip

No long-odds entries here worth the risk.

Pick
  • Marmalade
    9/2
