Furlong Friday in Hot Springs

Oaklawn Park opens today down in Hot Springs, Arkansas and we take a look at a competitive stakes race.

Oaklawn Park Race 8 {Dixie Belle Stakes~6 furlongs~3 year-old~Fillies~Stakes}

A talented group of eight is expected to go to the gate. There is plenty of speed to insure a fast pace. Speed numbers are close making for a contentious race. Most in here are coming into with brief to lengthy layoffs. It should be a great stakes race.

#7 Durango (Hamilton / Morse) should be the favorite and could go on to take this race. She is by far the fastest filly in the race posting the highest speed number at the distance and the highest last out speed number at a slightly longer distance. She has put in three strong peaking workouts prepping for this race. She should share the lead on the front end.
 $ NO VALUE $.

#2 Above Fashion (Rocco / Faucheux) should challenge with the third highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one modest workout. She is 100% in the money at this distance from three tries. This gal shows the tactical speed to blend nicely into the pace having enough left to make a solid effort in the stretch.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Marque Miss (Hill / Mason) should contend with the fourth highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three superb peaking workouts. This gal may benefit from a wicked pace as she will track it and strike going into the stretch.

#3 Katalust (L. Quinonez / Von Hemel) will be in the mix with the second highest last out speed number and three sincere workouts. This gal has already notched a win at this distance securing the third highest speed number at it. She is another that will benefit from a speedy pace.
