TAMPA BAY DOWNS Race #8
Wednesday 06/17 04:00 PM Eastern
Bet this race at Diamond SportsTop pick: #8 (TEGLA) (6-1) - Price play pressed the pace before weakening to finish a distant 3rd here at this going 8.5 furlongs May 30. The mare was racing second back off of a two-month break, and I give her a small edge in a wide-open contest.
2nd pick: #9 (Lady Jordan) (8-1) - Lightly raced and fast from the gate, she broke her maiden here by a 'nose' at this distance May 8. 3yo tired badly in her follow up at this level, but moves off the rail and may do better at a big price with a less stressful trip.
3rd pick: #4 (Multitude) (12-1) - This well-bred filly had early traffic issues last out and was never involved while racing evenly. Daughter of 'Tiznow' was racing off a long layoff and may do much better today. Another longshot with a good shot.
4th pick: #2 (Miss Lotus Flower) (3-1) - The morning line and probable favorite, she rallied to finish 2nd May 13 at this level. The effort seemed to come from 'out of the blue,' and I believe she's vulnerable at a short price.
