Sunland Park Oaks, March 28

While the Grade 3, Sunland Park Derby has received much of the attention for the race card on March 28 at Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino, the six-horse Sunland Parks is interesting. While it would have been nice to see a couple of more horses in the field, there is value in the race.

The talented Ellafitz ships in for trainer Bob Baffert and is 3-1 in the morning-line. She has won 2 of 4, but the local favorite Queen Greeley is the morning line favorite at 2-1 and has won 3 of 4 for trainer Todd Fincher. Also keep an eye out for Harissa and Tornado Betty.

There are several other top races for Sunday's card, including the New Mexico Breeders' Derby and Oaks.

Also coming in for Sunday's card in the third-race allowance is a Steve Asmussen horse by the name of Sea Gaze, which has won 11 of 39 races and is shipping in from Oaklawn Park.

First race on Sunday is 12:55 p.m.
