TAMPA BAY DOWNS Race #7
Wednesday 06/17 03:30 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (ROSAS WAY) (3-1) - 'Rosa' chased a quick pace before tiring to finish a distant 2nd here at this distance for a $12,500 price tag May 22. The 3yo drops to a new low, has a stalking style, and his outside post is a plus. I give him a slight edge.
2nd pick: #1 (Gilded Drama) (7-2) - Fast from the gate, he tired to finish 4.5 lengths in back of 'Rosas Way' here May 22. The 5yo had to rush up after being bumped hard at the break and should be involved every step from his rail post with a clean beginning.
3rd pick: #6 (Striking Heir) (9-2) - This veteran tends to hang in the crucial stages and is making his ninth start at this level in quest of his third win. I believe a minor award is his ceiling.
4th pick: #7 (Early Deligh) (7-2) - No speed type has rallied to finish 2nd in two straight at this level. Both were going shorter, and this seven-furlong trip is a plus for him. A fast and/or contested pace would help his style out.
