East Coast Results: Tampa Bay Downs Race #2 T-fecta (box of the top three pks) 1-6-8 $107.60.
Tampa Bay Downs Race #2 Top Pick #1 (Tour de Comprise) $4.00.
Aqueduct race #3 Exacta (6-7) $7.70.
West Coast Results: Turf Paradise Race #2 Best Bet #2 (Exponential) $2.10.
Turf Paradise Race #9 Top Pick #1 (a Real Jewel) $3.00.
Top pick: #3 (EASE AWAY) - The top two picks in here were separated by a nose last out with this filly making a nice wide move to finish third just back of today's rival "Granby Girl". Race was her first in two months and trainer Juan Guerrero will add blinkers this afternoon. Gets a slight edge.
2nd pick: #8 (Granby Girl) - Nice debut saw her race close up and stay on gamely to finish second here at this price on Jan. 16. Trainer Ed Kenneally is having a good meet and wins at a solid 29% with second-time maidens. Win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Andrea's Moon) - She had some traffic issues in the same race as the top pair, then finished fourth here just 11 days ago. Effort was her best to date and she could get a small share at a big price.
4th pick: #9 (Mistretta) - She rode the rail and made up some ground in the same contest as the top two picks Jan. 16. She's worked well since and gets a positive jockey switch.
