Free Horse Racing Picks for Oaklawn Races on Friday, April 10, 2020

As with most other racecourses that remain open in the US, Oaklawn in Hot Springs, Arkansas, is closed to spectators. Oaklawn hasn’t let that slow them down; they’ve been running regular races since January and show no sign of going off schedule.

Right now, Oaklawn is running its “Racing Festival of the South” with a full card of races April 9, 10, and 11, and there will be another trio next week on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (April 16-18).

Let’s take a look at three of the biggest races this Friday, April 10, at Oaklawn. Incidentally, you should be able to find the complete list of all ten races at Oaklawn that day, as well as the latest odds, at one of our top horse racing betting sites.

The weather forecast for Oaklawn racecourse for the race is bright and sunny, with the high in the low 60s. Post time for the first race at Oaklawn racecourse on April 10, 2020, is 1:05 PM CDT.
