Sixth Straight Win For Wright


Tampa Bay Downs | Al Messerschmidt

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.
