Stakes Saturday in Tampa

Stakes Saturday. Where the pools are rich, the crowds are large, and the horses are ready to prove their mettle. Today we examine a super Turf Sprint in warm and friendly Tampa, Florida.

Tampa Bay Downs Race 9 {Lightning City Stakes~5 furlongs~TURF~3 year-old Up~fillies/mares~Stakes}

A well situated field of twelve will hit the green in this Turf sprint. There is a plethora of speed in this race which should produce an furious pace. Speed numbers are relatively close making it any gals race. It should be an exhilarating event.

#7 Katie's Kiss (Gallardo / Fawkes) might have the edge with the second highest (tie) last out speed number and three quality workouts. She is 85% in the money at this distance earning the third highest speed number at same. This gal also has the tactical speed to rate off the warp speed on the front end. A daughter of Kantharos, she should be ready to romp.
$1 WIN  /  $2 PLACE  /  $3 SHOW.

#11 Iroquois Girl (Gaffalione / Nicks) should challenge with the highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and four serious peaking workouts. She should be forwardly placed looking for an opening among the speed demons. A daughter of Indian Charlie, she is 100% in the money at the distance from four tries.
$1 PLACE  /  $2 SHOW.

#6 Joya Real (Ferrer / DeMasi) is sensational at this distance with a 100% in the money record from eight starts. She holds the third highest last out speed number. This gal has already notched a win over the Tampa Bay Downs grass. A daughter of Eddington she could gallop through this field if a fierce pace develops.
$1 SHOW.

Another Wagering Interest

#3 Scatcapade (Morales / Clement) should be in the mix with the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number at a longer sprint and two bullet workouts. She is another that relishes this distance having secured a 100% in the money record at it from five starts. This daughter of Scat Daddy should be close to the pace ready to launch into the stretch.

10 CENT Superfecta

#7 Katie's Kiss  /  #11 Iroquois Girl  /  #6 Joya Real  /  #3 Scatcapade.
