Trainer Michael Wright captured his sixth straight race at Tampa Bay Downs Sunday when More Chances (Hard Spun) won the third race at the Oldsmar oval. The streak also included a win with 15-1 outsider Nantucket Red (Get Stormy) in Saturday's Wayward Lass S.
“When you put them in the right race, that's all that matters,” Wright, who trained two-time Sovereign Award winner Scotzanna, said.
Wright will try for seven in a row in Wednesday's eighth race with the 6-year-old gelding Victor's Destiny (Souper Speedy).
In 1977, when the track was known as Florida Downs, trainer E.T. Clark won with a record-setting nine consecutive starters from Jan. 28-Feb. 4.
