Oaklawn Park boosts purses for sixth consecutive year
Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Ark., announced purse increases for a number of key overnight categories for its 57-date meet that opens Jan. 10. The increases are being made for a sixth consecutive year at the track, which offers electronic gaming. Oaklawn previously announced a stakes schedule featuring 31 races worth a track-record $6.1 million.
Oaklawn will open its meet with maiden special weight races worth $55,000, up from $53,000 during the meet that closed in April. The track’s allowance races will start at $56,000, compared with $54,000 at the most recent meet. All other overnight races will get a boost of at least $1,000 from their starting level in 2013.
Oaklawn also announced that the minimum purse for the meet has been increased from $15,500 to $17,000.
“It’s exciting to be part of a racing program that continually bucks the national trend and gets better and better each year,” David Longinotti, director of racing for Oaklawn, said in a release.
Longinotti and Pat Pope, the racing secretary at Oaklawn, will begin recruiting stables from around the country in the near future. They plan to make trips to California, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, and Oklahoma.
Oaklawn is quickly becoming one of the best betting opportunities in the winter
I would like to see Oaklawn re-do it a bit so more money goes to route races as opposed to sprints, perhaps with maiden specials for instance being $52,000 going short and $57,000 going long and N1x allowance events being $55,000 going short and $60,000 going long.
Very nice....for the management of Oaklawn risen purses up again, now how about an increase for the workers of Oaklawn, like the security guards,in charge of the stable area,keeping an eye on the barns and the horses and making sure that only authorized people come through the stable gate.
I wonder how these recruiting trips to the other states are received by the respective racing secretaries? They cannot have open arms for this?
turf track would boost business to the moon
