Re: G3 Sam Davis 1 1-16th Today @ Tampa

Albert Park scratch could make Premier Star the lone speed. If Independence Hall lets PS loose on the lead, it could be game over. Watch out for Embossed in the Suncoast Stakes. She's won twice going two turns on this track and has yet to be asked for her best. Tough post, but she does not need the ...

Is American Pharoah a turf sire
