    Friday, April 17

    Race 1:  (3) Googleado drops in class and is working great here.  Exacta boxes 3-4, 3-5

    Race 2:  (2) Jrock has faced some tougher foes thus far and that could serve this one well v. this group.  Exacta boxes 2-1, 2-3

    Race 3:  (3) Miss Hunny drops a top jock, Lanerie, in a field of mostly journeyman or young riders so betting here that Lanerie's agent has put him on the right horse.  Exacta boxes 3-1, 3-6

    Race 4:  (7) Contestant showed big improvement in the first start off a freshening and may have found a soft spot here.  Exacta boxes 7-2, 7-3, 7-5

    Race 5:  (1) Stormy Rocit gets a top rider and has kept good company.  Exacta boxes 1-4, 1-5

    Race 7:  (5) Risetotheoccasion shows two races at Oaklawn this year that are better than his races last year and an improving horse is a dangerous commodity.  Exacta boxes 5-6, 5-9, 5-11, 5-10

    Race 8:  (4) Sistas Stroll flashed big-time talent last summer and Proctor can get one ready off a layoff.  Exacta boxes 4-2, 4-5, 4-6, 4-9

    Race 9:  in the grade 3 Hilliard-Lyons Doubledogdare Stakes, (3) Deceptive Vision has won off a layoff before so she can be ready to win here and she kept very good company last year.  Exacta boxes 3-5, 3-1, 3-8, 3-9
