For the first time in a couple years, Picks and Ponderings won’t be at the Sam F. Davis Stakes — our foray south will instead happen a little later this winter, for the Tampa Bay Derby. However, being in Chicago won’t stop us from previewing Saturday’s pair of sophomore dirt stakes at Tampa Bay Downs, the Sam F. Davis Stakes (G3) for open company and the Suncoast Stakes, the newest-minted Oaks points prep.
Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of Saturday’s pair of three-year-old preps at Tampa Bay Downs, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
(My preview of the Sam F. Davis Stakes is published at ThoroFan Handicapper’s Corner, as well! It’s not the only race at ThoroFan this week; Michael Amo also tackles the Grade 1 Gulfstream Park Turf.)
