Oak Tree: Early pick 3 returns $75


The first $1 pick 3 on Saturday's card returned $75.70 and two of the winners were ridden by Joe Talamo.

Spot of Salt ($5.40) rallied wide in the stretch of the first race to catch Mr. Sierra in a six-furlong maiden race. Spot of Salt was timed in 1:11.57.

In the second race, Talamo guided Lit'sgoodlookngray ($10.60) into contention from just off the pace and beat Tall Texan. Afleet Deal, the 3-2 favorite, was in contention at the eighth pole but faded to finish fourth.

Talamo had trouble in the early running of the third race aboard 6-5 favorite Go On Babe. The 3-year-old filly was in traffic on the backstretch but settled when Talamo guided her farther to the outside. Go On Babe rallied three-wide on the turn and won the allowance race over 6 1-2 furlongs by 1 1-4 lengths over Missdealornodeal in 1:16.58.
