The road to Kentucky Oaks 2024 continues at Tampa Bay Downs on Saturday, February 10, and I have included Suncoast Stakes 2024 picks below. The non-graded event for 3-year-old fillies has a $150,000 purse and the six entrants will be journeying a mile and forty yards on the main track. The Suncoast Stakes is the 5th race on Feb. 10 and the top five finishers will earn Kentucky Oaks points (20-10-6-4-2). 

Suncoast Stakes 2024 Picks & Final Time Ratings

Whocouldaskformo was an even 3rd at 9-1 in her extended sprint bow at Aqueduct. She was less than even money in a special weight affair at this course and distance on Dec. 31, and she stalked and romped in that slow early/fast late event. Shug McGaughey is 7-for-14 at the current stand and this $450k Uncle Mo filly figures to save ground behind the speed. 

Power Squeeze stretched out after a pair of sprint races and cruised from off the pace at one mile in a race originally scheduled for turf and run on dirt at Delaware last fall. She was 8-1 in the Cash Run at Gulfstream Park on Jan. 1, and she stalked wide and easily handled that field. I am not sure about the overall strength of the Cash Run and am a bit concerned about a bounce.  

Life Talk is a logical contender but she had everything her own way as the chalk over a speed favoring wet oval in the Grade 2 Demoiselle on Dec. 2. She should be up on the pace and Todd Pletcher’s filly is probably classier than this group. 

The Suncoast field also includes America’s Vow, Managing Mischief, and Gorgeous Girl.
