Hillbilly Royalty could have edge in Northern Spur Stakes


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – The graded stakes experience Hillbilly Royalty brings into the $100,000 Northern Spur on Saturday at Oaklawn Park could give him a slight class edge over a competitive field of 3-year-olds. The Northern Spur, a one-mile race that ends at the sixteenth pole, will immediately precede the Grade 1, $1 million Arkansas Derby.
