On Saturday at Tampa Bay Downs, the featured race is the 11th running of the $100,000 Turf Dash Stakes. Scheduled to be run at five furlongs on the turf, the race has drawn a full field of twelve with two additional contenders listed as also-eligible.

Stakes winner Bold Thunder has been tabbed as the morning line favorite at odds of 7-2 for trainer Patricia Farro. A five-year-old son of Bold n’ Flashy, he has won five of his seventeen starts, two of which came last year. He has been training forwardly for his first start of the year and was last seen finishing fifth against allowance company as the favorite at Gulfstream but moved up to fourth via disqualification. Daniel Centeno will be aboard from post position ten.

Veteran Saint Leon in sharp form 

Second choice at 4-1 on the morning line is Saint Leon for trainer Michele Boyce. A ten-year-old son of Stravinsky, the veteran gelding has won sixteen races over the course of his career and was on the board in six of his seven starts last year. He was second as the favorite last time out against optional claiming competition at Tampa Bay Downs and will have Rosemary Homeister, Jr. aboard from post position eight.

Green Mask returning off of seven-month break

Also in the field at morning line odds of 4-1 is Green Mask who will be making his first start for trainer Wesley Ward. A recently-gelded four-year-old son of Mizzen Mast, he has won three of his six starts and has been on the shelf since a fourth-place finish in the Manila Stakes at Belmont Park in June. Two starts back, he earned his first stakes win in the Paradise Creek and has been training steadily. Mario Pino will be aboard from post position eleven.
