1/ST and NBC Sports handicapper Eddie Olczyk turns his attention for a pair of key Saturday bets to Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark. Follow Edzo’s plays each week – only with 1/ST and Xpressbet!
RACE 6 // 4:38PM ET // ALLOWANCE // 6 FURLONGS
#5 Many Sweet Treats (10-1 ML)
Lots of value to be found in this state-bred race. Many Sweet Treats runs hard every time and can be tactical in terms of pace. Notice that she was claimed for $15k last time out in open company at Remington Park. I believe she has been aimed for, and waiting to run against, her own kind in this Arkansas-bred spot. Win-place and a daily double bet with my spot play in the next race.
RACE 7 // 5:09PM ET // MAIDEN CLAIMING // 6 FURLONGS
#12 Shes Got It (5-1 ML)
Honor Code filly will get plenty of pace to run at from her outside post position. Her initial try in November at Churchill Downs was a very good run. I like how her trainer, Wayne ‘The Cat’ Catalano, protects this filly in this start, waiving the claiming tag; I will take that as a great sign. Win bet.
Good luck this weekend!
