The train towards the May 1 Kentucky Derby rolls on and gains steam with every passing week. Next stop: Saturday's $1 million Rebel Stakes (G2) at Oaklawn Park.

The Betmix Angler online handicapping database tells us that Avg. Last 3 Turn Time has produced 20% winners of the 8.5 furlong 3-year-old graded stakes in Hot Springs since 2012. It's true that the wild $126.00 Win Return is due in large part to Super Steed, the 62-1 winner of the 2019 Southwest Stakes. However, this handicapping factor has pointed to two other double-digit winners of this race type.

Find this race in Betmix Birddog and use the Avg. Last 3 Turn Time slider to see which horse ranks first in this factor. That’s the Sharp Angles play.
