XpressBet editor-in-chief Jeremy Plonk offers his best bets for Sunday with both plays at Oaklawn Park.
Oaklawn Race No. 3 (2:26 p.m. ET/11:26 a.m. PT)
#1 Runway Magic (5-2 ML)
Trainer Joe Sharp popped winners with his first 2 starters at the Oaklawn meeting and could run that streak to 3 with this well-placed horse. Fits the starter allowance condition strongly and rides into Hot Springs in good form from Kentucky. Win bet.
Oaklawn Race No. 7 (4:18 p.m. ET/1:18 p.m. PT)
#1 Stellar Lily (15-1 ML)
Longshot look to a Ron Moquett trainee going out for the hottest barn to start the new Oaklawn meet this week. Moquett's runners are all firing, mostly maidens like this one, and scoring at prices. Decent Kentucky efforts in first two starts and now adds Lasix and hot-riding Rafael Bejarano. Win-Place bet.
