Rich Averill's Averill Racing finished on top of the Tampa Bay Downs owners' standings after today's closing day card was canceled due to inclement weather following the first race. Averill defended his 2018 title with 23 victories, 14 on his own and nine in various partnerships. On the training side, 75-year-old Gerald Bennett picked up his fourth consecutive meet title and fifth overall with 69 victories, the second-highest single-season total in Tampa Bay Downs history. Samy Camacho paced all jockeys with 123 winners to capture his first Oldsmar title. Racing resumes at Tampa with the track's annual two-day Summer Festival of Racing June 30-July 1.
