Wednesday's 2nd race (12:58pm ET) from Tampa Bay Downs is a $12,500 claiming event for 3-year-olds dashing six furlongs on the main track.
#4 Classy Prayer (9-2) improved smartly on the drop to graduate in a local $25k Maiden Claiming sprint Jan 5. Bennett shows a profit with his recent grads trying winners for the first time and the gelded son of Meadow Prayer seems realistically spotted. He sports the best Pace Ratings and is probably the one to catch.
