Bayerd could be the speed of sprint


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Oaklawn has an abundant collection of quality sprinters on the grounds led by Whitmore, and the division’s embarrassment of riches will be on display Thursday. Racing secretary Pat Pope split an optional $55,000 claiming race for 4-year-olds and up at six furlongs into two divisions, to be run as the sixth and eighth races. The purse for each is $84,000.
