There is a little gem of racing on West Coast of Florida called Tampa Bay Downs and that track this Saturday is hosting the Grade 2 $350,000 Tampa Bay Derby at a mile and a sixteenth and online sports betting players should look for some love Kentucky Derby runners here.

This race has been won by some nice horses over the years like Burning Roma, Sun King, Limehouse and Street Sense in 2007 and that champion went on to win the Kentucky Derby.

Last year Watch Me Go was coming off a third in the Sam Davis but rallied from fifth in the Tampa Bay Derby to get up by a neck in 1:44 1/5 with an 84 Beyer.

Two years ago Todd Pletcher’s Super Saver was beaten a half-length in this race but then exploded in the Kentucky Derby to win it with a 104 Beyer.

This year, Pletcher is back for more as his Spring Hill Farm will try to make it three straight to stay unbeaten. The sports bet runner fits in the Beyer department but was tiring in last. The place horse in last was 6 clear of the nearest foe and that’s a positive.

Prospective should run big. He got a nice prep over the track, and then was hung wide from the marooned slot in last.

The bad news is he is facing arch-rival Battle Hardened, who ran greenly in the debut but has been solid since. He has tactical speed and that will give him first run on the deep closers and the blood is there as he is kin to Grade 1 winner and over $900,000 earner Colonial Colony.

Golden Ticket just broke his maiden so he has some work to do while Twin took 12 races to win and was taxed in the process.              

Chief Energy has not been seen since a poor effort in the summer at Monmouth while Tell All You Know brings legit speed and loves this layout.

Cozzetti needed slop and 6 foes when winning for the only time but has drilled fast for this at Gulfstream. Ravelo’s Boy got a feel of the strip last time but has to come from left field.

Take Charge Indy flashed ability since Day One, was troubled in Hansen’s BC Juvenile win and could have just been dead short in last. The winner that beat him last time flattered this guy by taking the Risen Star next out.

Fox Rules must prove he can win on the dirt while Rajun Charlie will break from the extreme outside and although he has some semblance of speed, he has to prove he can win away from Delta.

With Spring Hill Farm likely to get a lot of the sport betting online money, the play looks to be the horse with the game win over the track and with the pedigree to thrive. Bet Battle Hardened and look for a repeat with Take Charge Indy and Spring Hill Farm possible partners in the gimmicks.
