Here’s the field from the rail out with morning line odds, jockey, trainer, and comments.

  1. C Z Rocket (9-5), F Geroux, Rene Amescua – Geroux comes to town to ride for the eight time aboard this 8-year-old son of City Zip who last raced in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint at Del Mar. Have to go back six races to his last win here in the G3 Count Fleet. Winner of $1.5 million, he has all the back class and will race with Lasix again for the first time in four starts.
  2. Seven Nation Army (5-1), R Vazquez, Ronald Moquett – Oaklawn specialist owns four wins here including a two-back victory in similar conditions. Tried the G3 Maryland Sprint last time out, racing without Lasix, and was a well-beaten 9th. Sitting on a bullet for his first race in over 6 months.
  3. Lykan (12-1), T Pereira, Ingrid Mason – Eligible for NW4L, his last trip to the winner’s circle was three-back at Ellis. Has 1 win at OP that’s not on the chart. Exits a key race here in December that produced a couple of next out winners. Still a longshot.
  4. Mojo Man (9-2), F Arrieta, James DiVito – Hasn’t been out in over 6 months since a runner-up finish in a stakes on the all-weather at Presque Isle last August. Was 5th in the Count Fleet behind C Z Rocket in his last local start. Does have three wins in Hot Springs. Hot jockey. Cold trainer.
  5. Attachment Rate (8-1), D Cabrera, Ronald Moquett – Stablemate of Seven Nation Army, he’s NW4L eligible and 0 for 2 at this distance. Competed in the ’20 Kentucky Derby and beat one horse home. Stakes placed since then but he’ll have plenty to do in here.
  6. Kneedeepinsnow (6-1), R Santana, Mike Maker – Exits a key race from which the third place horse returned a winner in his next start. Was a West Coast runner who swapped hands for $80,000 when claimed twice, in three starts, from NW2X optional claiming races. He’s another NW4L eligible. But in his last out he was off a step slow and finished 4th in a fast and rich “key” 6 furlong allowance here.
  7. Cazadero (5-2), J Rosario, Steve Asmussen – Rosario returns after being sidelined from injury and will replace Santana who was aboard this Street Sense colt for all seven of his lifetime starts. He’ll open as the favorite but of the NW4L eligible, of which he’s one, his last two starts were conditional NW3L, finally breaking through last time out in a 7 furlong at Churchill. Has 1 win at this distance and is 0 for 2 at Oaklawn. All things considered, there are better options in here.

Post time for DRF’s Race of the Day is scheduled for 4:46 PM ET and will go as race 8 on the 9 race card for Friday, January 14, 2022 at Oaklawn Park.
