Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park Results
Las Vegas, NV - There were two huge Kentucky Derby qualifying races over the weekend - one at Keeneland and one at Oaklawn Park. In the $1 million Grade 1 Arkansas Derby at Oaklawn Park it was Todd Pletcher trained Overanalyze that ran away with the 100 points in easy fashion by 4 1/4 lengths at 7-2 odds. The win secured Overanalyze a starting spot in the Kentucky Derby in less than a month's time. Frac Daddy finished a very good second at 23-1 odds and gained 40 points to creep closer a starting spot in the Run for the Roses. 22-1 shot Carve came up with an impressive third place finish while Falling Sky earned 10 points with his fourth place finish. 9-5 favorite War Academy had trouble in the starting game and never recovered eventually walking off the track after a half mile. Falling Sky was followed by Rebel runner-up Oxbow, the 3-1 second choice who lacked much punch in the stretch. Then came Den's Legacy, who faded after making a bold advance, Divine Ambition, Texas Bling, Heaven's Runway, and War Academy.
