Oaklawn Park - Race 4
#8 Dapper Jack (9-2 ML) – Trainer Kim Puhl has closed the Oaklawn meet on a strong run, going 19: 4-2-3 during the month of April (just 2-for-45 prior at the meet). The 21% April win rate is backed up by a remarkable $3.24 return for every $1 bet – including 3 winners topping $30 apiece. Puhl and Fernando De La Cruz are 7: 2-1-0 together during that span.
Oaklawn Park - Race 8
#3 Gingham (3-1 ML) – The jockey-trainer tandem of Martin Garcia and Bob Baffert has won with all 5 of its pairings at Oaklawn since the start of March. Consider 4 of the 5 were favorites and all 5 were bet to 2-1 or less.
Oaklawn Park - Race 9
#7 Shedaresthedevil (12-1 ML) and #14 Alta’s Award (12-1 ML) – Fillies exiting Oaklawn’s Honeybee Stakes have won the Fantasy Stakes 5 of the last 7 years, including trainees for Brad Cox ($25 payoff) and Steve Asmussen ($33 payoff), who saddle these longshot contenders.
