A Tampa Bay Superfecta Sunday

On this Superfecta Sunday we take in a lively Turf mile for the youngsters.

Tampa Bay Downs Race 8 {1 mile~TURF~2 year-old~Fillies~Allowance Optional Claiming}

A good crop of nine fillies will hit the green in this late in the card feature. There is some assemblage of speed to make for a quick run. The speed numbers are relatively close for a competitive event. Our task is to string together a winning 10 CENT Superfecta Box ticket. It should be an exciting Turf race.

#1 She's Lethal (Gallardo / Ness) might have the edge with the second highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and two stout workouts. She will be stretching out to this distance for the first time. This youngster has an 80% in the money record from five starts. This race could be the one that brings her into the winners circle. She is our Bronze Horseshoe selection. Expect her to be tracking the pace.
$1 SHOW.

#8 Statum Lace [IRE] (Ferrer / Lerman) comes off two wins while racing in across the pond in Great Britain. Her Time Form last out speed number is the highest among this group. Prior to a brief layoff she was working a three race progression. This Irish gal has put in one decent workout in preparation. She is another that could be tracking the pace ready to strike.

#2 Moms Choice (Baird / Rivelli) is the daughter of the magnificent Turf sire, Kitten's Joy. She holds the third highest last out speed number and has put in two superb workouts. This lass will be making her fifth start while achieving a 75% in the money record. Look for her on or near the lead seeking to hold off the fast approaching herd in the stretch.

#5 Spinamiss [IRE] (M. Cruz / Pletcher) is dropping in from a Grade Three competition five months ago. She shares the third highest last out speed number and was working a two race progression. This gal has put in three successful workouts that include a bullet. She should be forwardly placed and could be destined for favoritism.
