Sakima has the pedigree to get the job done


HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – Oaklawn Park racing secretary Pat Pope said before the meet that he felt he had more 3-year-old colts on the grounds than fillies, and his assessment is backed up by the track’s twin features Thursday. A pair of entry-level allowances for 3-year-olds highlight the card, with the 1 1/16-mile races going as the eighth and ninth while drawing a total of 17 horses.
