Free Horse Racing Picks for Will Rogers Downs on Monday, April 20, 2020

Thoroughbred racing at Will Rogers Downs in Claremore, Oklahoma, for April 20, 2020 includes the Cinema Stakes for fillies, as well as a couple of other races whereby a careful bettor might make a dollar or even two.

Weather forecast for Will Rogers Downs on Monday is looking like a certified Spring day, with a high in the mid-70s, a 20% chance of rain, and winds at a mildish 9 mph.

While you’re looking at my picks, you should also take a look at our recommended horse racing betting sites for the full list of races, entries, and wagers available.

Post time for the first race on April 20, 2020 is 1:15 PM (CDT). My Will Rogers Downs picks and tips for today follow below.


  • Post Time:2:15 PM (CDT)
  • Purse: $20,900
  • Distance: 6 furlongs
  • For Three Year Olds And Upward Which Have Never Won A Race Other Than Maiden, Claiming, Starter, Or Oklahoma State Bred Allowance Or Which Have Never Won Two Races.

Race 3 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Dance Doctor, A Pusac, 5/1
  • 2 Flatout Winner, R Eikleberry, 4/1
  • 3 Eye Cloud, S E Bermudez, 15/1
  • 4 Kwik, O Sanchez, 10/1
  • 5 Valiant Appeal, L J Luzzi, 3/1
  • 6 Past Visions, G Steinberg, 20/1
  • 7 Strong Side, D Cabrera, 5/2
  • 8 Launch Light Dream, F Amparan, 12/1
  • 9 Mas Takela, L D Biehler, 12/1

Race 3 Prediction and Pick

While favorite Strong Side has a record deserving of his 5/2 moneyline in this race, I can’t say as much for Valiant Appeal at 3/1,  and even less for Flatout Winner at 4/1.

I’d like to recommend a horse with a chance of returning higher profits on your wager, but I only sort of like Dance Doctor, and 5/1 isn’t quite good enough to get me excited about a win ticket. So it looks like I’m sticking with the favorite in this race.

  • Strong Side


  • Post Time: 4:15
  • Purse: $26,400
  • Distance: 5-1/2 furlongs
  • For Accredited Oklahoma-Breds Fillies And Mares Three Years Old And Upward Which Have Never Won A Race Other Than Maiden, Claiming, Starter Or Which Have Never Won Three Races.

Race 7 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Service Biz Annie, F Amparan, 30/1
  • 2 Bright Bling, A B Ramos, 4/1
  • 3 Sweet Mary M, L D Goncalves, 2/1
  • 4 Long Ride Home, A Triana Jr., 20/1
  • 5 Between the Arches, B C Landeros, 10/1
  • 6 Flyrtie Rockette, K S Tohill, 30/1
  • 7 Euromandy, L Wade, 12/1
  • 8 Sandy Sangria, F Wethey, Jr., 6/1
  • 9 Casino Queen, D Cabrera, 8/1
  • 10 Royal Soprano, J R Eads, 20/1
  • 11 Keena, R Eikleberry, 5/1

Race 7 Prediction and Pick

Sweet Mary is heavily favored to win in this race, so that means there are plenty of longer-odds bets to make on these ladies. I like Keena, with Ry Eikleberry in the irons, but the horse that really piques my interest is Between the Arches at 10/1, with Bennie Landeros aboard. She’s got a solid win/earnings record—quite similar to that of the favorite.

Go ahead and bet on Sweet Mary as well if you just gotta have extra insurance of a win here, but it’s Between the Arches for me.

  • Between the Arches

RACE 9 – Cinema Stakes

  • Post Time: 5:15 PM
  • Purse: $55,000
  • Distance: 1 mile
  • For Oklahoma-Bred Fillies, Three Years Old.

Race 9 Runners and Odds Forecast

  • 1 Diamonds N Spurs, D Cabrera, 4/1
  • 2 Polly Tiz, J R Eads, 7/2
  • 3 Sunday’s Vision, C Kimes, 12/1
  • 4 She’s All Wolfe, F Wethey, Jr., 5/2
  • 5 Kallie Sioux, J A Medina, 5/1
  • 6 Seeing Double, B C Landeros, 6/1
  • 7 The One for Fun, L D Goncalves, 5/1

Race 9 Prediction and Pick

A nice tasty stakes race to finish off this session of free picks. A tightly matched field of fillies with just a couple of longer-odds choices leaves me with the suspicion that the winner will not be paying out bigly.

Still, I’m going to go with Diamonds N Spurs at 4/1 for the win. Great post position and, well, my Magic 8 Ball took one look at that pair and said “It Could Happen.”

  • Diamonds N Spurs
