Oaklawn Park – Race 9: Post time:  5:10 CT

1-Wicked Halo (5/2)

Had a very rough trip and ran below her true form when finishing fourth in the Dixie Bell S. in her comeback last month, but we’re expecting the graded stakes winning filly to regain her winning form with that race behind and with better racing luck in this year’s edition of the Purple Martin Stakes.  The daughter of Gun Runner has excellent early speed but doesn’t need the lead to win, so at 5/2 on the morning line there’s value to be found in the win pool and in the various rolling exotics.

Fair Grounds – Race 12: Post time: 5:44 CT

2-Zozos (8-1)

Puts his unbeaten streak on the line while getting tested for class in the Louisiana Derby-G2 in a race in which the likely front-runner Epicenter should be hard to beat.  However, this talented son of Munnings isn’t far removed from the favorite based strictly on speed figures, and with just two races under his belt the Brad Cox-trained sophomore certainly has plenty of further improvement in him.  At 8-1 on the morning line, he offers a reasonable gamble.
