Tampa Bay Downs 4/15 – Free Horse Racing Betting Tips and Selections

Tampa Bay Downs remains true to its racing schedule, with eight races on both turf and dirt scheduled for April 15, 2020.

I’ll take a look at the three richest races on the card for April 15th. Don’t forget that you can find wagering opportunities on all the races at Tampa Bay Downs with a visit to one of our recommended horse racing betting sites listed below.

The weather in Tampa looks to remain soggy, with a 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms. The high for Wednesday will be in the upper 80s with the wind around 15mph.

My Tampa Bay Downs picks for today start with race two; post time for the first race is 12:30 PM (EDT).


  • Post Time: 1:00 PM (EDT)
  • Purse: $20,000
  • Distance: 5 furlongs (turf)
  • Conditions: For Maidens, Three Years Old and Upward

Race 2 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • The Connector, K. J. Coa, 5/1
  • Arba, W. A. Garcia, 12/1
  • Reachnforasixpack, R. D. Allen, Jr., 15/1
  • K’s Funhouse, A. Suarez, 10/1
  • Charliecando, S. Camacho, 3/1
  • Nobodyknowsnothin, T. B. Mejia, 7/2
  • Belushi Samurai, A. Quinonez, 12/1

  • Alite (also eligible), W. A. Garcia, 20/1
  • Prepare for Glory (also eligible), H. Villa-Gomez, 6/1

Race 2 Prediction and Pick

My Eclair, with Antonio A. Gallardo aboard, is the favorite, but there’s a gaggle of definite maybes in this race, including Charliecando and Nobodyknowsnothin. I like Charliecando in this race because the recent gelding has a slightly better record than My Eclair and because Samy Camacho is in the irons.

  • Charliecando


  • Post Time: 2:30 PM
  • Purse: $14,500
  • Distance: 6 furlongs (dirt)
  • Conditions: For Maidens, Three Years Old

Race 5 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • Golden V C, H. Hernandez, 20/1
  • Bahamian Star, S. Camacho, 10/1
  • Impressive Speed, S. Spieth, 8/1
  • Adios See Ya, L. Mawing, 10/1
  • Puerto Varas, A. Suarez, 8/1
  • Robertos Ticket, W. Martinez, 10/1
  • Burl, J. E. Lopez, 6/1
  • Federale, A. Santos, 9/5
  • Large, P. L. Cotto, Jr., 9/2
  • Feast, K. J. Coa, 15/1

Race 5 Prediction and Pick

Federale is the heavy favorite in this race, and his jockey, Ademar Santos, is certainly no slouch in the earnings department. Still, Large at 9/2 and even Burl at 6/1 might be better bets. I’m going with Large, a gelding with the same number of money runs as the favorite. And Large is ridden by Pedro L. Cotto, Jr., who has a better in-the-money profile than Santos.

  • Large


  • Post Time: 3:30 PM
  • Purse: $12,000
  • Type: CLAIMING
  • Distance: 7 furlongs (dirt)
  • Conditions: For Three Year Olds and Upward Which Have Never Won Two Races

Race 7 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • Beyond Streetsmart, D. P. Butler, 30/1
  • Good Solution, A. Suarez, 6/1
  • Donnie Brasco, R. Mena, 15/1
  • Fog Warning, G. Wales, 7/2
  • Relishment, S. Camacho, 5/1
  • I’ll Make U Famous, W. Alencar, 30/1
  • Devil’s Rule, M. Allen, 4/1
  • Absalom, W. Martinez, 6/1
  • Jack B Winkle, A. Santos, 9/2
  • Rock the Park, R. D. Allen, Jr., 8/1

Race 7 Prediction and Pick

Fog Warning, Devil’s Rule, and Jack B Winkle are the favored horses in this race, and their jockeys are all heavy hitters. Why do I like Devil’s Rule? Well, Devil’s Rule has been in the money eight out of his nine career starts, and veteran jockey Mike Allen is just the man to cross the finish line with him.

  • Devil’s Rule
