Oaklawn Park - Races 6 and 12
#14 Divine Armour (7-2 ML) and #7 Combatant (4-1 ML) – No Oaklawn stable has been hotter than John Sadler to close the 2020 meet. He’s 17: 7-3-1 since April 19, racking up 41% wins and a whopping $3.26 ROI for every $1 bet.
Oaklawn Park - Race 11
#4 Gouvernor Morris (9-2 ML) – Gulfstream preppers have been strong in limited strikes in the Arkansas Derby since 2013. They are 3: 2-1-0 during that span with wins by Classic Empire (9-5) and Danza (41-1), as well as a runner-up by Frac Daddy (22-1). And note trainer Todd Pletcher is a 5-time winner of the Arkansas Derby, including Danza’s score. He’ll also saddle Farmington Road in the Race 13 second division of the Arkansas Derby.
Oaklawn Park - Race 14
#5 Carlos Sixes (4-1 ML) – Trainer Karl Broberg saved bullets for the closing week of the 2019 Oaklawn meeting and has a strong contender for the season finale in 2020. Last year he went 9: 4-1-0 to end the OP stand with winners paying $9, $10, $11 and $18.
