The Tampa Bay Downs oval: where quality Thoroughbreds congregate.

Sometimes the early mornings are SO worth the sunrise! @Tampa Bay Downs #sunrise #mornings #horses #racetracks #racing

After a Tampa Bay Derby to remember, this Thoroughbred and rider take time to smell the flowers.

Backstretch observers enjoy the workout action and the brisk springtime air on a morning too perfect to replicate.
