Weekend Warrior for Saturday, March 26: Picks for Louisiana Derby, Fair Grounds Oaks, Sanibel Island


The Dubai World Cup will be run half a world away, but Fair Grounds is the center of attention on these shores Saturday, with a stakes-packed, 15-race card led by four Grade 2 events – the $1 million Louisiana Derby, the $400,000 Fair Grounds Oaks, the $400,000 New Orleans Handicap, and the $300,000 Mervin Muniz Memorial. The only other graded event Saturday is the Grade 2, $200,000 Santa Ana at Santa Anita.
