TAMPA BAY DOWNS Race #2
Wednesday 07/01 01:00 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #5 (SHE'S A LADY GRIZ) (7-2) - A lightly raced daughter of 'Include,' she switches from turf to dirt and cuts back in distance for this attempt. The 3yo rallied to finish 3rd going a mile on the local grass at this level June 17, and I give her a slight edge today.
2nd pick: #7 (La Wapa) (4-1) - She tired last out after rushing up following a slow start, but she had been competitive in her previous pair. This homebred has a stalking style and is a major factor with an alert beginning.
3rd pick: #9 (Her Zealous) (10-1) - A speedy and lightly raced mare, she tired here June 15 following a troubled break. It was her first race in just over two months, and this 5yo received good betting support. Longshot is capable of getting a share with a better getaway.
4th pick: #10 (Wild Embrace) (3-1) - The only first-time-starter entered, she's from the solid barn of veteran Kate O'Connell. She's won at a 15% rate with debuting stock in 2019-20, and this daughter of 'Bayern' need not be anything special to factor against this group.
