Sunday's 5th race from Oaklawn Park is a $16,000 claiming event for fillies and mares which have never won three races. They will be dashing six furlongs on the main track (Post Time 4:06 p.m. EDT).
#10 ITALIAN JUSTICE (4-1) fired trifecta shots in her last six starts (2 wins). She exits a wide show finish from the outside post in a similar local spot and William Martin has excellent stats with his second after a claim starters.
#7 Sweet Carli (5-2) exits an easy flat mile turf score at Fair Grounds vs. $15k claimers. She fired in all three starts since Brad Cox claimed her for $30k, and she finished in the top three in all four starts at this distance. Joe Talamo wins races with this barn and she should be forwardly placed.
#9 True Castle (7-2) dropped into a $16k/2L spot March 27 and pulled clear after dueling for the first half-mile or so. She likes this distance and owns running style versatility.
#4 M and M Girl (8-1) added blinkers and showed improved early speed in a runner-up finish in a local $8k claimer March 6. That was her first start after the Robertino Diodoro claim and barn money rider David Cohen strings along.
