Panama Red set out to try and go gate to wire and he was hustled for the lead from Dakota Dancer, with the two favorites Scotish Star and Marketsegmentation content to stalk the leaders.

As they went down the backstretch, the eventual winner SURPRISINGLY was way back and caught on the fence in a pocket.

The order stayed the same as they went through the opening quarter in a fast 22.88 secs and the fast pace got a lot of these in trouble.

As they headed out of the back, it was still Panama Red holding sway but now Marketsegmentation and then Scotish Star came to challenge the leader at the top of the home stretch.

These three had broken four lengths clear of the pack and it was here that Surprisingly started to give chase.
She was still three lengths down as they entered the final furlong, but she flew late to get upright on the wire.

Tampa Bay Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $175,000 – 1 1/16 miles – Turf – 4-Year-Olds and Up

Emmanuel gets his career back on track with an authoritative win in the Grade 3 Tampa Bay Stakes to win by 2 lengths.

As the gates opened it was Winfromwithin who was keen to be on the speed and he led from Drama Chorus.

As they exited the clubhouse turn, these two were setting the pace and it was here that the chalk Chez Pierre moved up into the third spot to stalk the two leaders, while eventual winner EMMANUEL had also moved closer to the speed and was positioned wide in the sixth spot.

With a half mile to go it was still Winfromwithin who held sway, but the challengers were queueing up in behind with Mighty Heart getting through on the rail to take the third spot.

As they exited the far turn, it was here that Chez Pierre launched his bid for glory. He came into the three lane to challenge the two leaders while Emmanuel had followed him through and pitched widest of all into the four lane.

As they set down for the drive to the wire, Winfromwithin was hanging tough and Chez Pierre’s effort was short-lived.

Emmanuel grabbed the leader with a sixteenth to run and widened to win by two lengths at the wire,
Golden Alchemist who was badly positioned throughout closed strongly to take the third spot and is one to note for next time.

Bayakoa Stakes

Grade 3 – Purse $250,000 – 1 1/16 miles – Dirt – 4-Year-Olds and Up for Fillies and Mares

A Mo Reay guns down Lovely Ride late to take the Grade 3 Bayakoa Stakes and notch her second stakes win.

Lovely Ride broke smartly from her wide gate and as she had done for her two previous successes, had a clear plan to go gate to wire.

She did not have it all her own way on the lead as Graysonsmacho Gal pestered her on the front end, but Torres had things under control and soon cleared away from his pursuer.

As they went down the backstretch, the other fancied runners Le Da Vida and the eventual winner A MO REAY were content to bide their time around 6 lengths from the front.

Lovely Ride widened as they exited the backstretch and got a two-length lead as they entered the home stretch.

A Mo Reay had started her move and pitched wide while Le Da Vida had found a seam on the fence and came inside to make her challenge. The leader was game in front and battled bravely to try and fend off the eventual winner. and only gave way late on.

It was still a good effort from the runner-up giving 3lbs to her rival, while the third horse Le Da Vida will likely do better when stretching out in distance.
