Horse Betting Online: Good weather greeted the west-central coast of Florida last week, and five days of live racing at Tampa Bay Downs were contested over fast and firm horse betting conditions. There were eight more races last week than the previous week, yet field size held steady at 8.4 starters per race.

Horse betting favorites won just 29-percent of all races, and six winners between 10/1 and 41/1 odds helped boost the week’s average winning mutuel to $12.32.

The major “anti-speed” bias from the previous week was gone, but off-the-pace runners still held a slight advantage on both horse betting surfaces.

This week’s “Tampa Bay Horse Betting Journal” covers racing from March 14-18.
