Celebrated Oaklawn Park reminds me of a splendid college town ... a college town geared for horse racing that is. Everything in Hot Springs is about the Meet, and everyone in-town knows of its importance. A weekend of racing is wrapping up, so enjoy it while it lasts.

At Horseracing.net/us we have you covered, including all of the action! It is a good time for some of the best that North American racing has to offer. Stay tuned!

Most Likely Winner: (Race 7: Tempt Fate #4, 5/2):

My “sure shot” pick is this one from the barn of Carl Deville. With some nice form, this Arkansas bred looks mighty impressive coming into this AOC contest. After competing in some solid “Non-G” events, the colt won all of his races at Oaklawn during the 2021 Season. What an impressive performance, and I would expect that trend to continue at a condition level like this one. Jerry Caroom owns this 4-yr-old, and with Florent Garoua in the irons, I cannot see anyone in this field who has a shot against this one. A poor attempt last time out at Delta should not be a deterrent. Let’s bet to win … 

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Win, #4


Off-the-Pace Play of the Day: (Race 6: Skyline #4, 20/1):

Trainer Allen Milligan has a 1st time starter that is well-bred by Street Sense. You might be a bit wary of backing types like these, but there is major value afoot here. At odds that are sure to be double-digits when post time rolls around, I think this is a major play. You get an experienced rider in Martin Garcia, plus looking at the sire/dam 1st starter stats … it looks good! A WPS Graduated Bet makes a ton of sense … talk about value!

Wagering Recommendation: $100 Bankroll, Graduated Wager WPS #4 ($10-W, $15-P, $75-S)


Spotlight Race of the Day: (Race 8: Dirt, 6F, OC50k, F&M 3+):

The “highlight” race on the Sunday card is this tough OC Co. battle. Most of the money will flow in the direction of Ron Moquett’s Sarah Harper #3. That is probably fair and just, especially considering this filly by Vancouver (AUS) is building quite a resume over 3 races. She has improved with each race, and her work at Churchill was quite a springboard. Coming to Oaklawn though might be tougher than you might think. Sometimes the transition is not as smooth. There is no doubt that when it comes to ability, Moquett is an ace. Maybe you want to accept 8/5, but I am not as keen. Instead, I want to try and beat her, with a couple of other entries. How about taking Break Curfew #4 and Perfect Hapiness #5. The Hiles and Cox Barns are strong, and each of these runners will give us odds that tend toward overlays. The Cox entry, in particular, really piqued my interest when she competed back at Indiana Grand. Her conditioner uses that track effectively, and she should not be overlooked whatsoever. Pairing these 2 over the presumptive favorite appears to be a nice wager. That should get the job done, and help us go home a winner before the Oaklawn day is done.

Wagering Recommendation: $2 Exacta Cold, 4/5 w 3


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