Let's check out today's Best Horse Value (BVH). What's our BVH, you ask? A Best Value Horse is probably not going off as the betting favorite and is unlikely to to go off with the longest odds. Simply put - our Best Value Horse is a runner our very own @TSDaveW likes with morning line odds that we'd classify as fair to middling. This will be a horse that should be competitive, and if it hits, you'll be glad you played it! Odds, of course, change throughout the day, however we're lookin' at the Morning Line odds when making these picks.

Today's BVH at Tampa Bay Downs:

Race 4

1 1/16 Miles on Turf

#2 Ribaldry (IRE)

Morning Line: 15/1

This 3 year old daughter of Ribchester is making her U.S. debut, but has been training at Tampa Bay since last November. Her last race was a 3rd place finish at Beverly Racecourse in Beverley, U.K. She is in excellent form and her speed and familiarity with the Tampa Turf bode well for this Irish lass. With a morning line of 15/1, Ribaldry (IRE) is our Best Value Horse at Tampa Bay Downs.

Hit us up @_TurtleSports and let us know what you think!
