March 4th at Tampa Bay


With only a few tracks running today I expect the pools at Tampa to be huge. The pick 5 has a carry over of almost $19,000. There will be at least another $80,000 bet into that pool today. The sequence is not an easy one but I am going to give it a shot today anyway.

Tampa Race#5 Pick 5   Post time 2:40pm eastern

Race#5 There is some talent in the race but you just don’t know who will run their top race. The 9 will be going to the lead and try and steal it. 4,5,7 are your closers, whomever gets the best trip in that group will win if the 9 stops.

Race#6 The 9 is a horse that could repeat, excellent last race and has some back class to win again. The 5 at 10-1 ml could upset based on her race one back. The class horse, but more of a turf horse is the 8. Can win and has the connections to do that, not trustworthy as a key though

Race#7 There are many horses running at higher levels but none of them are horses I like that have the closing style that can be trusted in a turf race. It is a bit of a guessing game. None of the horses have a number that is fast enough to win this level, hence very wide open. 1,2,4,5 are the most likely winners.

Race#8 The race that 1,5,7 in was a fast run race for this level, so I think the winner comes out of that race. If the 1,7 hook, 5 wins. If 1 or 7 clears they can win. The unknown guess horse is the 4, only because of the drop and the trainer.

Race#9 My choice in this one is the 9. Should get a much better trip and can take over late. The 5 had a good trip last time and should again, so has to be considered. The 4 has average figures, but no workout, so that is a concern.

Here is a possible ticket: 9/5,8,9/1,2,4,5/1,4,5,7/9    cost :24.00
others 4,5,7/8,9/1,2,4,5/1,5/9 and 9/5,8,9/1,2,4,5/1,5/5
