  • Tampa will be off the turf for race four but on the turf for all other events (8, 10, and 12).  The Hillsborough stays on the turf, which is labeled "YIELDING" today.

    I wrote that Hillsborough morning line favorite Mushka would be vulnerable if the turf course came up anything but FIRM, and the connections seem to be thinking the same thing as she is scratched.  Cure for Sale (ARG) looks like the standout at this point but will likely offer little value after all the scratches are taken into account.

    The main track at Tampa is listed as FAST but I'm guessing is not completely dry as the connections of She Be Wild have decided to scratch her out of Florida Oaks.  In my opinion, She Be Wild would have been another absolute bet against with an off track.
  • No track report from Gulfstream yet. Gulfstream will be off the turf today, with many scratches in the originally scheduled turf races.
  • Changes for Oaklawn are up.  Track is FAST.
  • Changes for Santa Anita are up.  Main track is FAST, turf is FIRM.
