Race #9 – The G3 Withers – 1 1/8 miles dirt – 4:27 pm Analysis / #4 – Hit Show / #3 – Jungfrau / #1 – Arctic Arrogance

#4 Hit Show is a son of Candy Ride making his 4th start for Brad Cox and Manny Franco in the irons. Lasix comes off for today and ships in from OP. Bullet work looks promising and should give a strong account of himself. #3 Jungfrau is 3rd off the layoff for Bill Mott with Dylan Davis in the irons. This son of Arrogate was put up in a DQ last out and looks to set the tables straight today. Dangerous player. #1 Arctic Arrogance is a speedy son of Frosted for Linda Rice and Jose Lezcano getting the call. Tons of early foot and has faced the big boys. Blinkers on today and the barn scores 14% on this equipment change.

Tampa Bay Downs

Race #9 – The $150,000 Suncoast – 1 and 40 yards – 4:48 pm Analysis / #1 – Wonder Wheel / #9 – Julia Shining / #6 – Guns n’ Graces

#1 Wonder Wheel comes off a three month break for Mark Casse and Tyler Gaffalione in the irons. She drew the rail spot and her last race win was in the G1 BC Juvenile Fillies. She seeks three straight and will come calling when asked. #9 Julia Shining is a late running son of Curlin for Todd Pletcher looking to make it a perfect three wins under Luis Saez. The Todd Squad wins 25% off the last race win. #6 Guns n’ Graces is a stalking daughter of Gun Runner who is 2 for 2 ITM and scores 27% off a last race win for Chad Brown.

Race #10 – The G3 Sam F. Davis – 1 1/16 – 5:18 pm Analysis / #9 – Champions Dreams / #11 – Litigate / #7 – Dubyunell

#9 Champions Dream is a stalking son of Justify for Mark Casse and Tyler Gaffalione aboard. They are coming 2nd time off a layoff where the barn scores at 17%. He will come running late and enjoy the added ground to run. #11 Litigate is a son of Blame for Pletcher and the Todd Squad with Luis Saez in the saddle taking over for Javier Castellano. The rider’s change is a big move and expects him to be in the shadow of the wire. #7 Dubynell hails from the Danny Gargan barn with Jose Ortiz in the driver’s seat. Seeking three in a row should be right on the pace today.
