Saber's Oaklawn horse racing wagering picks

Oaklawn Park

Race 1 

Arkansas bred allowance fillies and mares travel 1/16 miles. No. 1 Turnstone just finished second last out at this level and distance. No. 4 Florida Bird has run back-to-back good sprints vs. Arkansas-bred allowance company. She can go long. 1-4 

Race 2 

$6,250 claimers go six furlongs. Trainer Jerry Hollendorfer sends out a tough entry with two combackers, both getting big class drops in No. 1 Monydontspenitself and No.1a Annie’s Candy. No. 4 Storminside just missed last out at this level and distance. No. 9 Freedom Hill is in from Turf Paradise and takes a big class drop for a very tough jockey and trainer combo. 1-1a-4-9 

Race 3 

This very difficult card continues with Arkansas-bred $25K maidens going six furlongs. No. 7 Macho Rocco looks to be the speed on the drop as trainers are looking to cash with this meet coming to a close. No. 10 Thornish will be keeping Macho Rocco in his sights. No. 12 Houston Pipe looks live at first out. 7-10-12 

Race 4 

$12,500 starter allowance runners travel 1-1/16 miles. No. 1 Around the Dial is a perfect fit and seldom runs a bad race. No. 2 Rocko’s Wheel can come up with some big efforts. At 12-1 on the morning line we must use, No. 5 Ernie Banks is in from California for trainer Robertino Diodoro and looks very live. No. 7 Roaring Fork was last seen running at Santa Anita for trainer Peter Miller, Ricardo Santana gets on. No. 9 Kenzou’s Rhythm exits a troubled last race, No. 10 Moment is fast and comes off a wire to wire win last out at this distance. 1-2-5-7-9-10 

Race 5 

No. 4 Marquee Thunder is the play in this $30K maiden 3-year-old race as they travel 1-1/16 miles. He was last seen running at Keeneland back in October of last year vs. a good group of 2-year-olds. He comes back in this much easier spot as a gelding. No. 1 Urbanite drops and gets blinkers on. No. 2 McShady also drops and makes his first start as a gelding. No. 7 Squared Straight is in from Santa Anita for trainer Doug O’Neill. He is also a first time gelding. 4***-7-1-2 

Race 6 

$20K claimers go six furlongs. The hot jockey/trainer combo of Orlando Mojica and John Sadler hook up with No. 2 Hidden Promise who is a juicy 10-1 on the morning line. No. 4 Botero just missed last out. No. 6 Young Phillip is fast and live in the spot. No. 9 Bump Bailey will be tough on the drop to this level, No. 10 Exultation is another who drops looking for the win, this looks like a nice dime Superfecta box. 2-4-6-9-10 

Race 7 

$20K claimers go six furlongs. No. 11 Fascilitator is our play here. We will bet him win and place and use two horses underneath. No. 8 Coal Truth who gets David Cohen back in the irons and he will find a fast early pace to make his late run. No. 9 King of the Court was over his head last out. He is back at his correct level and a must use at 20-1. 11**-8-9 

Race 8 

Allowance fillies and mares travel 1/1/16 miles. No. 2 Crystal Lake looks to have found a field she can beat and at 10-1 on the morning line, we will be playing. No. 3 Out of Trouble is in from the Fairgrounds, looks live off the layoff. No. 4 Kiss More looks the speed of the speed. 2-3-4 

Race 9 

$80k optional 3-year-old fillies travel 1-1/16 miles. No. 2 Seattle Slang is in from the Fairgrounds off a big maiden win. No. 7 Lightning Bug is a live 30-1 shot who is the stalemate of Seattle Slang. No. 8 Auction Fever is in tip top form. No. 1 Lucky Betty looked good breaking her maiden last out when getting the stretchout. She could come right back with another big effort, a must use. 2-1-7-8
