Suncoast Stakes - Race #8 at Tampa Bay Towns – Post Time 3:45 PM ET
Considering this year's Suncoast Stakes figures to be won by one of the two favorites, R Angel Katelyn or Elate, we can start a relatively inexpensive pick 3. I will be passing on a couple of lower odds horses in the next two legs to the risk may well be worth the reward. R Angel Katelyn has won four of five career starts, the most recent a similar non-graded stakes over the track around one turn. With the ability to be tactically placed first or second in the early stages on the stretch out and with the best last race Equibase Figure in the field to improve on, she could win again. Elate dominated in her debut in New York at the end of November, powering home to win by 12 lengths. She's bred to love the two turn tip she's trying for the first time and her three year old debut should be even better than the effort she put in that debut.
Race 8 – R Angel Katelyn, Elate
Race 9 – Turbo Street, Coco Mon, Conquest Panthera
Race 10 – State of Honor, Fact Finding, Tapwrit, No Dozing
