Saber's Oaklawn horse racing wagering picks

Oaklawn Park 

Race 1 

Arkansas bred $16K maiden fillies and mares go six furlongs. No. 5 Miss Casey Beth will go good on the drop. The same can be said about No. 1 Dat Girl, they are the best of the ones that have run. There are two first- time starters in here that look live: No.8 Couverure and No. 10 Do Me a Favor, who is out of the dam Dignified Air who has dropped four winners from four starters, including a stakes winner. We will use her on top. 10*-5-1-8 

Race 2 

$12,500 starter allowance fillies and mares go six furlongs. No. 1 Sturdy One is very fast. She is in from Santa Anita off back-to-back wins there and  she is live off the layoff. No. 6 She’s a Dime missed by a nostril here last out. 1-6 

Race 3 

$10K claimers travel 1 1/16 miles. No. 12 Napoleon’s Empire looks set for his best in this his second start at the meet. He looks to have found a very soft spot with the scratch of Bookie Blues. We will single. 12***

Race 4 

$16K fillies and mares travel 1 1/16 miles. No. 2 Blunt Force ships in for trainer Tom Amoss and looks perfectly spotted. No. 7 Flatoutandfoxy will be making a late run. She will get a good set up with all the early speed in here. No. 11 Miss Mercken will be our play and key runner. She is in from the Fairgrounds and is the stalemate of Blunt Force and gets Joe Talamo up. All systems look a go! 11**-2-7 

Race 5 

$40K 3-year-olds travel 1 1/16 miles. No. 1 Fort McHenry drops in class and gets his first try for a price tag. The same can be said about No. 2 New Eagle. No. 4 River Finn is our play and key runner. He will be the controlling speed on the drop. No. 7 Icecap exits the same race as River Finn. 4**-1-2-7 

Race 6 

$6,250 fillies and mares go 5 1/2 furlongs. No. 1 Kalliste Rose drops back to the level of her win here back in February. No. 4 Lippy looks to wake up off the layoff and big class drop. She is looking for the win. 1-4 

Race 7 

Maidens go six furlongs, No. 1 Backshot was last seen running at Del Mar last August. His works say he is ready to roll as he takes the blinkers off. No. 4 Golden Notion gets his second start off the layoff, blinkers on and a big last work. No. 8 Ragtime Blues was last seen running Los Alamitos going off at .70 cents on the dollar. He is trained by Bob Baffert and cost $500K. 1-8-4

$50K starter allowance runners go six furlongs. No. 1 New Colossus won at this level and distance one race back. No. 5 Impressed has been facing some tough company and owns a big last work. No. 6 Vice Versa is fast and will look to take them wire to wire. No. 9 Julius continues the California invasion as he ships in for trainer Doug O’Neill and jockey David Cohen jumps on board. 6-9-5-1 

Race 9 

$40K claimers go six furlongs, No. 1 Strike That has run four times with three wins and a second. No. 2 Pete’s Play Call is in top form and has a big last work. No. 5 Volatile was last seen running at Churchill Downs. He is live in this spot. 1-2-5 

Race 10 

$80K optional 3-year-olds go six furlongs. There is a lot of front speed in here and that will make for a fast pace to run at. That will set things up for No. 4 Rager, who is a flat out closer, No. 6 Mr. Tip looks live at a big price. 4***-6
