Claimer of the Week at AGameofSkill.comComing off a dull performance for $20,000 at Remington Park, High Spirit invaded Tampa Bay Downs and won easily for an $8,000 tag in the second race Saturday afternoon (12/17/11). The Bernell Rhone trainee won for the same price tag in the spring at Tampa Bay and Saturday’s victory was an off the pace effort just like the one in April. A patient ride by veteran Mark Guidry placed High Spirit in excellent position turning for home. The 5 year old gelding by Stephen Got Even made it look easy passing foes in the stretch and coasted home in the final sixteenth of a mile. High Spirit is owned by Robert Hovelson and paid $5.80 to win.  High Spirit owns an impressive career record of 8 wins and 12 in the money finishes out of 29 career races.  — Art Parker.
