TAMPA BAY DOWNS Race #4
Wednesday 04/29 02:30 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #1 (KALU) (7-2) - Lightly raced 4yo from the Godolphin operation drops in half after a troubled break and wide trip from an outside post for a $16,000 tag at this 3l condition April 5. He had defeated $25K foes to clear the 2l level March 14 and is moving to the rail for this one. I give him a small edge.
2nd pick: #8 (Mister Storm) (5-1) - He tired late to finish 4th at this level and distance April 11. It was his first-ever at Tampa and his first since Jan. 19 at Gulfstream. Speed/stalker is in a good barn (Jose Delgado) and is a win candidate.
3rd pick: #2 (Gilded Drama) (5-2) - From the barn of leading trainer Gerald Bennett, he takes the same drop as 'Kalu' following a wide and even 4th place finish for a $16K tag March 18. A winner of his previous start in an 'off the turf' contest, he must be left in the mix.
4th pick: #5 (Mikado) (15-1) - Old-timer hasn't raced since mid-October when he won a sprint on the all-weather surface at Presque Isle Downs. Training steadily, he's not a win candidate, but could grab a minor award at a big price.
