Sincethe start of 2019, Antonio A. Gallardo has ridden more winners than anyother jockey at Tampa Bay Downs. 84 wins gives him an impressive strike rate ofmore than 22%.

Withfive winners here in the last week, which included a double on Sunday, Gallardohas a strong book of rides and could continue his fine form.

In the 21:00 race he’ll ride Christophe Clement’s only runner on the card, the three-year-old Bitcoin Passion. The trainer has won six of his last twelve races and boasts a strike rate of 42% at Tampa since last January.

BitcoinPassion proved his backers right on his debut on this course in January andhe’s expected to maintain his success in his second start given the form of hisjockey and trainer.

AntonioA. Gallardo booked rides: Drill Bit (18.00), Darlindiva (orsecond-reserve Marmalade) (19.00), Never Have I Ever (19.30), Now I’m Broke (20.30),Bitcoin Passion (21.00)


Thereare three cards in Sweden on Wednesday, with the nine-race card at Bergsåker kickingoff proceedings at 17:pm. 

The 19:30 race is the one to watch, where On Track Piraten lines up in pursuit of the winning prize of 60,000 Swedish Krona.

With 46 wins in 163 career starts, and a further 47 places, the geldinghas won an incredible 18,155,288 Swedish Krona in prize money (which is morethan £1.4 million at the current exchange rate).

Despite winning two consecutive races last March and continuing to workwell at home, trainer Hans R Strömberg has admitted that the 12-year-olddoesn’t quite look the force of old recently.

Fans of the gelding will want a strong performance but he’ll find thingstough in post position eight. Angle of Attack will likely set off favouritehaving won two of his last three starts back in France.
