Free Horse Racing Picks for Tampa Bay Downs on Friday, April 10, 2020

Tampa Bay Downs is open for racing (but not for spectators) right now, and their races this week have plenty of opportunities to wager a couple of bucks on your favorites. Don’t have a favorite? Well, I do, and let’s get started, what do you say?

Of the eight races scheduled for Friday, April 10, 2020, I’ve taken a look at the three races worth the most. Sure, you may not be able to watch the races live and in person, but who has that kind of time, anyway? In the meantime, you can find wagering opportunities on all the races at Tampa Bay Downs with a visit to one of our recommended sites for betting on horse racing.

Weather predictions at Tampa Bay Downs for April 10 say we should expect 80 degrees with scattered thunderstorms, so it is possible that the two turf races in this post may be moved to the main dirt track.

Post time for the first race at Tampa Bay Downs on April 10, 2020, is 12:24 PM (EDT).

Let’s get into my Tampa Day Downs picks for today.

RACE 1

  • Post Time: 12:24 PM (EDT)
  • Purse: $10,350
  • Distance: 6 furlongs (dirt)
  • Type: MAIDEN CLAIMING
  • Conditions: For Maidens, Fillies, and Mares Three Years Old and Upward

Race 1 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • Her Zealous, W A Garcia, 20/1
  • Drive In, A Suarez, 5/2
  • Donnameup, G Wales, 7/2
  • Margie’s Rouxbee, J A Garcia, 20/1
  • Lady Jordan, H Hernandez, 6/1
  • Tidal Field, C C Lopez, 12/1
  • Brycens Gold, R Feliciano, 6/1
  • Mor Breeze, T B Mejia, 30/1
  • Wildcat Merry, P L Cotto Jr., 3/1

Race 1 Prediction and Pick

I’m going to go with Wildcat Merry edging out moneyline favorite Drive In. I’d suggest boxing the two, but the odds don’t really make it worth the risk.

Pick
  • Wildcat Merry
    3/1

RACE 2

  • Post Time: 12:53 PM
  • Purse: $10,350
  • Type: MAIDEN CLAIMING
  • Distance: 1 mile (turf)
  • Conditions: For Maidens, Three Years Old. 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 2 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • Lastfortinofamily, S Camacho, 4/1
  • Fifth of November, A Quinonez, 9/2
  • Rogue Rage, W A Garcia, 8/1
  • Gimmeabreak, N G Goodwin, 10/1
  • In Honor of Artie, W Alencar, 5/1
  • Don H, J R Herrera, 8/1
  • Finally, W Martinez, 5/2
  • El Solo Uno, P L Cotto Jr., 30/1
  • Estilo Peligroso, R D Allen Jr., 12/1
  • Handsome Gem, L Mawing, 30/1
  • West Side Warrior (also eligible, MTO), S Camacho, 5/1
  • Secret Magician (also eligible), G Wales, 20/1
  • A Day With Chris (also eligible), J L Rivera Jr., 8/1
  • Degas Away (also eligible), T B Mejia, 6/1

Race 2 Prediction and Pick

Even though this is Lastfortinofamily’s first race since being gelded, the moneyline has him at 4/1, and with Samy Camacho aboard, he’ll at least give race favorite Finally a run for his money. If the race moves to dirt, it looks like Samy could wind up aboard West Side Warrior.

Pick
  • Lastfortinofamily
    4/1

RACE 8

  • Post Time: 3:55 PM
  • Purse: $12,600
  • Type: CLAIMING
  • Distance: 1 mile (turf)
  • Conditions: For Three Year Olds and Upward Which Have Never Won Two Races. 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

  • Hold the Spice, D P Butler, 5/1
  • Lion Charmer, A Suarez, 3/1
  • Stunning Baby, T B Mejia, 10/1
  • Soul of the Hero, S Camacho, 9/2
  • Soul Kitten, J A Leon, 30/1
  • Irish Expectations, J A Garcia, 15/1
  • Gate Crew, J E Lopez, 8/1
  • Global Dinner, R Mena, 15/1
  • High Heater, A A Gallardo, 5/1
  • Minnesota Lucky, S Spieth, 6/1

Race 8 Prediction and Pick

Everybody seems to think this race belongs to Lion Charmer, but while Angel Suarez is a solid veteran jockey, I’m going to go with Soul of the Hero, with Samy Camacho aboard.

Pick
  • Soul of a Hero
    9/2
