FanDuel TV’s Weekend Coverage Features Openings Of Oaklawn, Los Al

The racing season at Oaklawn Park will begin on Friday featuring the return of popular juvenile Tyler's Tribe in the $150,000 Advent Stakes and FanDuel TV will be live from Hot Springs with complete coverage of the winter meet.

Tyler's Tribe, one of the feel-good horse racing stories of 2022, was undefeated in his first five career starts before being eased in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint (G1). The Iowa-bred gelding will have regular rider Kylee Jordan aboard and has been tabbed as the 3-5 morning line favorite in the field of nine juveniles.

FanDuel TV's Gabby Gaudet will be on-site throughout the weekend with analysis and interviews. Saturday's card includes a pair of stakes races – the $150,000 Mistletoe Stakes and the $150,000 Ring the Bell Stakes. The 68-day Oaklawn Park meet will feature 45 stakes races throughout the season including the $1.25 Arkansas Derby (GI), a key prep race for the Kentucky Derby, on April 1.

Los Alamitos will kick off its six-day Thoroughbred meet on Friday and Saturday's racing will feature the $300,000 Starlet Stakes (GI) and FanDuel TV's Todd Schrupp, Mike Joyce, Christina Blacker and Scott Hazelton will be on-site with exclusive interviews, analysis and expert selections.

Trainer Bob Baffert has won the Starlet Stakes (GI) eight times and will be trying for his sixth consecutive victory in the race when he saddles three contenders in the seven-horse field on Friday – Doinitthehardway, Faiza and Fast and Shiny. Faiza will be ridden by Flavien Prat and steps up to stakes competition for the first time after breaking her maiden in her debut at Del Mar in November.

In addition to racing from Oaklawn Park and Los Alamitos , FanDuel TV will also be featuring Laurel Park, Gulfstream and more.
