Oaklawn Park // 26-FEB

We're back for Saturday at the Track and we're starting things off in Hot Springs, Arkansas watching the thoroughbreds at Oakland Park. They've got an amazing card lined up today with 12 races, more runners than you can shake a stick at (124 pre-scratch) and two Derby Prep races - featuring the $1Million Rebel Stakes:

Race 5: $300K Honeybee Stakes (GIII) / Kentucky Oaks Prep

Race 11: $1 Million Rebel Stakes (GII) / Kentucky Derby Prep

Each prep race will award the top four finishers with points, 50-20-10-5 respectively, inching them ever so closer to the big dance. Trust us. You won't want to miss out on the action! Running conditions are looking better than yesterday with good dirt and cold temperatures in the mid 30's with cloudy skies. Bundle up!

Let's check out today's Best Value Horse (BVH). What's our BVH, you ask? Our Best Value Horse is probably not going off as the favorite and is unlikely to to go off with the longest odds. Simply put - our Best Value Horse is a runner our very own @TSDaveW likes with morning line odds around 7-1. This will be a horse that should be competitive, and if it hits, you'll be glad you played it! Odd, of course, change throughout the day, however we're lookin' at Morning Line Odds when making these picks. Let's check it out!

Oaklawn Park BVH

Race #12

$100K Allowance Optional Claiming / 6 Furlongs on Dirt

Heritage Park (#7)

Jersey Town / Heartstrong

M/L: 10-1

Heritage Park is moving up from his 2nd (by a neck) finish to this AOC $100K race. Backing out his last place finish on January 2nd, this son of Jersey Town could be a factor today if he returns to his 2021 spring / summer form where he strung together 6 #InTheMoney finishes - four of which were wins. Trainer Kenny Smith has Francisco Arrieta in the irons who over the last 10 days in winning at 21%. Starting the day with 10-1 odds, Heritage Park (#7) is our Best Value Horse on today's card at Oaklawn Park. Best of Luck!
