Bettors get two excellent races to invest Sunday, in the Oklahoma Derby and Remington Park Oaks.
The Oklahoma Derby includes the likes of Super Stock, Warrant and Mr. Wireless. The Remington Park Oaks has Pauline’s Pearl, Lovely Ride and Amendment Nineteen in the mix.
Horse racing betting odds are available for the feature races.
Mr. Wireless is Dialed In
There has been good early betting support for Mr. Wireless and it’s not hard to see why.
The Bret Calhoun-trained son of Dialed In has won four of his last five starts, including the Indiana Derby and West Virginia Derby.
He has beaten the likes of Pennsylvania Derby hopeful Fulsome, race rival Warrant, and the highly regarded Bourbonic.
His form shapes well for the Oklahoma Derby. He was able to turn the tables on his second-place finish behind Warrant in the Texas Derby last start, so he could score another win over the Brad Cox-trained runner.

Calhoun said he took some time to mature, but has since filled out into a top-line gelding.
“I’ve trained some of the family, and they are a very good family, but a little slow to develop,” Calhoun told Horse Racing Nation. “He was a horse that was immature mentally and physically early on.
“It took a lot to get him to the races… But once the light came on, he got some weight off him and got some fitness, he really moved forward and has continued to progress right along.”
We expect the sportsbook to take serious money for Mr. Wireless on Sunday.
Colt Ready to Issue a Warrant
Warrant, a 3-year-old colt, showed his ability when winning the Texas Derby over Mr. Wireless. He showed tenaciousness to score before running second behind Mr. Wireless in the West Virginia Derby.
The Brad Cox-trained son of Constitution made a run on the outside of the winner in the straight, but he was unable to reel him in. It was a good run in defeat, and with a better trip in transit, he could reverse the placings.
His form was franked early when running second behind Fulsome at Oaklawn Park before Fulsome would subsequently win the Matt Winn Stakes and Smarty Jones Stakes.
Warrant’s form checks out and we have no doubt he’ll be fighting out the finish.
Amendment Nineteen Headlines Oaks
The Remington Park Oaks is a wide-open field but bet online markets should have Amendment Nineteen close to favoritism.
The 3-year-old filly kicked off her career with a second placing behind the talented Always Carina, who would eventually finish second in the Mother Goose at Belmont.
She then won her maiden race at Belmont before finishing second behind Caramel Swirl, but there is little wrong with that form.
The biggest danger is Pauline’s Pearl, who has been mixing her form this season. She won her maiden in December before finishing second in the Honeybee Stakes at Oaklawn Park.
It was a race of their own today, and she had to settle for second but couldn’t be more excited about GreenMount Farm bred- Amendment Nineteen! 📜🇺🇸💫 pic.twitter.com/dcZ0nfmp2a

The daughter of Tapit followed it up with a win in the Grade III Fantasy Stakes before failing to deliver in the Grade I Kentucky Oaks, but this is a much easier contest.
Pauline’s Pearl might have needed time to recover from that effort, but her recent efforts are good form indicators. She ran third in the Iowa Oaks before running second in the Charles Town Oaks, so she’ll be fit and ready to fire.
Bettors shouldn’t leave out Amendment Nineteen and Pauline’s Pearl out of their Remington Park Oaks selections.
Lovely Ride Back to Her Best
There is a lot of unknown about Lovely Ride, but the three-year-old filly by Candy Ride knows how to win.
The Calhoun-trained runner scored an impressive win on debut at Sam Houston before doubling down at the same track five weeks later.
She then entered the Indiana Oaks, where she battled for fifth behind Soothsay. However, the mark of a good horse is how they respond and she did the job last start at Parx.
It might not have been the strongest field for the Cathryn Sophia Stakes, but Lovely Ride is living up to her name, so include her in Remington Park Oaks calculations.
