Stakes Saturday in Arkansas

Looking for more Derby points in Hot Springs.

Oaklawn Park Race 10 {Rebel~G2~1 1/16 mile~3 year-old~Graded Stakes}
A fantastic field of seven will search for Kentucky Derby points in this feature race. The lone speed is the favorite, American Pharoah. Speed numbers for all appear to consistent and relatively close. It should be an exciting race.

#4 American Pharoah (Espinoza / Baffert) is coming off a layoff, but looks to be ready to start the season on the road to the roses. He holds the highest speed number at the distance, a triple digit score, is working a three race progression, and has put in four sensational workouts. This son of Pioneer of the Nile has the opportunity to wire this field.
$2 WIN  / $3 SHOW.

#2 Madefromlucky (J. Velazquez / Pletcher) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and four superb peaking workouts. A son of Lookin At Lucky, he should be tracking the pace ready to strike. He is seeking his third win in a row and has won at this distance.
$2 SHOW.

#5 Bold Conquest (Santana / Asmussen) should contend with the fourth highest (tie) last out speed number, a two race progression, and two strong peaking workouts. This son of Curlin should track the pace seeking to chew up ground in the stretch.

Another Wagering Interest

#1 The Truth Or Else (Borel / McPeek) should be able to improve once more with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and two stout workouts. This lad also holds the second highest speed number at the distance.

10 CENT Superfecta

#4 American Pharoah  /  #2 Madefromlucky  /  #5 Bold Conquest  /  #1 The Truth Or Else.
