Oaklawn Fan Favorite Win Willy Approaches $1 Million in Earnings
Oaklawn Park's fan favorite Win Willy will start in the seventh race on Sunday, a $75,000 optional claimer for 4-year-olds and up, with hopes of boosting his earnings record to seven figures.
Currently, the 7-year-old's bankroll is $977,887 with 10 wins in 29 starts for trainer Mac Robertson and owner Jer-Mar Stables. With the right kind of run, Robertson said the horse could start in the $500,000 Oaklawn Handicap on April 13. Win Willy won the 2011 edition of the race.
“He's running really well right now, and the track should be wet, which he likes. It seems like everything is going in his favor right now,” said Robertson.
