Most Likely Winner: (Race 4: Major Attraction #1, 5/2):

If you are after top selection and a score, then look no further than Genaro Garcia’s runner by Distorted Humor. This horse was double-entered, and scratched out of a race at Oaklawn yesterday. Clearly, his trainer thought this was the better spot. Ramon Vasquez is a popular rider, and I think he will get this one’s connections a victory … it would be his 3rd in 16 starts. Let's go ...

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Win, #1


Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 8: Marvin #10, 12/1):

If are looking for a price play on Sunday then here is the bet … Cross Traffic might not be at the top of Spendthrift’s sire list, but he still has potential. This 4-yr-old colt already has 11 starts to his name. With 2 wins, 4 placings, and 4 shows, that speaks to ability. Even though we have not seen him since March, his Oaklawn record makes him a "horse-for-the-course," in my estimation. Local track experience counts, and if he can run to his ability, at 12/1, then he will be a bet. The best news of all is that Florent Geroux gets the call, and he continues to ride as well as ever …

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Bankroll, Graduated Wager WPS # ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)


Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 7: Dirt, 1 Mile, MSW84k, 2):

Oaklawn Park has not had the chance to host 2-yr-old races since their Meet has normally run January through April. Times are a’changing … In this MSW extravaganza, I think Three Diamonds Farm holds the ace. Seal Beach #6 was awfully good back (2nd) at Churchill in a similar type of race. If this colt for Mike Maker can put a race together like that one again, then this son of Midshipman might find himself in the winner’s circle along with jockey Ramon Vasquez. Add Lasix … and you are looking at a major plus … I like this Maker runner, but my top selection is Brad Cox’s Rewire #8. I am hoping that this gelding by Mohaymen is a much better price, and I want to give him another shot, despite a poor showing as the favorite last time out at Churchill back on Halloween. Maybe the ghosts and goblins kept him away from the wire … With Florent Geroux back again, I am hoping that will right the ship. Another runner that deserves to be included on any ticket is Steve Asmussen’s Oiler #2. At 4/1, those odds are probably pretty square. He has some early speed, and that should put him in the mix when the bell goes off. The jockeying ability of David Cabrera is sound, but he has not hit-the-board just yet. Give him time … Those 3 should make for a boxed wager …

Wagering Recommendation: $2 Trifecta Wheel, 2/6/8


Enjoy another fab Sunday trackside! Best of luck on another run at Oaklawn Park!
