The Green Sheet is coming off another profitable weekend, as I had a pair of winners on the March 4 card at Gulfstream Park–Wake Forest (GER) and Gunnevera–in addition to giving out a cold exacta in the Fountain Of Youth (G1) and hitting the late Pick Four at the Hallandale Beach oval.

I’ll try to keep the good mojo going this weekend, as Compelled looks playable at a price in the Florida Oaks (G3) from Tampa Bay Downs, as does Dickinson to post a mild upset over Isabella Sings in the nine-furlong Hillsborough (G2). At Santa Anita, Dortmund has a solid shot to win his turf debut at a price in the Frank E. Kilroe Mile (G1) and Iliad is the play of the day to wire a field including Mastery and Gormley in the San Felipe (G2).

Next weekend, I’ll take a look at three races from Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas–the listed $250,000 Essex Handicap, the $350,000 Azeri Stakes (G2) and the $900,000 Rebel Stakes (G2)–in addition to the $400,000 Santa Margarita Stakes (G1) from Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.
