Saturday’s Oaklawn picks – April 25

- -

The penultimate weekend of the Oaklawn Park winter-spring meeting offers an 11-race Saturday card topped by a pair of stakes along with maiden and allowance races worthy of the day.

The handicappers are back for some more swings after faring well on last weekend’s Apple Blossom-Count Fleet card. This week presents new challenges with the $100,000 Bachelor for 3-year-olds and the $125,000 Carousel for older fillies and mares sharing featured status.

How did our crew do last week? Collectively they picked 15 winners – most overlapped – with Tom Law and John Shapazian leading the way. Tom picked five winners and John tabbed four. They’re ready for another week, along with Charles Bedard and Rob Whitlock.

They’ll be back next week, too, with selections from Oaklawn, Gulfstream Park and Tampa Bay Downs that will appear in The 2020 Special
