EQUIstaff was delighted to sponsor Race 8, the EQUIstaff Sophomore Turf Stakes on Sunday, March 26, 2023 at Tampa Bay Downs. It was a beautiful day at the track and we want to thank Margo Flynn, the Vice President of Marketing & Publicity, and everyone at Tampa Bay Downs for rolling out the red carpet and making it a day to remember!

Congratulations to owners Crown’s Way Racing/MBS Stable/Delava/Edward and Diamant/Eli, trainer Kelsey Danner, rider Antonio A. Gallardo, and 3YO colt Otaga for taking first! Otaga raced in the two path around the first turn, chased the leader on the inside up the backstretch, saved ground around the second bend and dueled in the late stretch to get up for the win in the final strides.

Beautiful day at the track!
