There is no shortage of horse racing on Saturday. If horse racing is your favorite gambling outlet, then Saturday is going to be a good day for you. There are 11 racecourses in action, including several of the big players like Aqueduct Racetrack and Churchill Downs. We had a sweep in New York at Aqueduct Racetrack with two horses successfully cashing.
One of our horses was scratched, so we’ll gladly take a 2-0-1 day. Charles Town was a small win to add to the profits on Friday. There is nothing wrong with that kind of effort. Laurel Park has the most stakes races on the schedule, and we have you covered with three picks. Let’s hope for the best in Maryland on Saturday. Along with Laurel Park, we’re also looking for winning horses at Remington Park tonight.
Remington Park has an evening card on Saturday worth $137,863. There are nine races expected to be run in Oklahoma tonight. Scattered showers are in the forecast today, so the track could be sloppy. Head below for our free Remington Park picks for November 28, 2020.

Distance:5 ½ Furlongs
This is the second biggest race of the day at Remington Park on Saturday night. Race 6 is for a $21,560 purse covering 5 ½ furlongs on the dirt. Bourbon Cowboy and Drc All Inclusive are likely going to be close in the stretch. Bourbon Cowboy is 8 for 42 in his career, and is looking to get back on track after finishing 6th and 4th in his previous two performances.
Three races ago, Bourbon Cowboy was sharper to place 2nd by 4 ¾ lengths. In his most recent victory, he beat Wilbo by a head for a $93,000 purse on March 24, 2019. He was in a different world then with respect to form. Bourbon Cowboy has slowed down considerably.
Since that win, Bourbon Cowboy has been in the top-3 in two of five outings. In the race that Bourbon Cowboy lost by 4 ¾ lengths on August 29, the horse that he lost to was Drc All Inclusive. And then Bourbon Cowboy finished 6th and 4th in his most recent outings. Drc All Inclusive is 9 for 40 in his career.
He has been in good form since early in the year. He has been in the top-3 in eight of his last nine performances. In his past three outings, he finished 1st, 2nd, 2nd. Drc All Inclusive placed 2nd behind Miltontown by 2 ¼ lengths. I’m going to give him the edge to bounce back on Saturday night.

Distance:5 ½ Furlongs
Race 7 carries a $16,500 purse for 5 ½ furlongs of racing on the dirt. Seven horses are expected to participate in the event. The final stretch should be between Sermon by the Sea and Oh What Luck. Sermon by the Sea gets the inside rail out of the gate from the No. 1 post position. Sermon by the Sea is 2 for 9 in his career, but hasn’t been to the winner’s circle since October 13, 2019 at Turf Paradise.
Since that win, Sermon by the Sea has gone 5th, 4th, 7th, 2nd. In his most recent outing, he placed 2nd behind Young Philip by ¾ lengths in a $16,500 event. As the betting favorite in that race, Sermon by the Sea was expected to do one better. Nevertheless, it was a step in the right direction for him. He should be close at the wire on Saturday night versus this field.
Oh What Luck is a perfect two for two in his career, with wins on April 30, 2019 and August 23, 2019. The layoff is the main concern for Oh What Luck. However, if he runs how he did in those two outings, then a win should be in the equation on Saturday. In his first victory, Oh What Luck beat O S U Kickoff in a blowout by 8 ¼ lengths.
Oh What Luck followed up to win again, this time by 9 ½ lengths over Kent’s Bet in a $43,350 event. In his last prep work for today, Oh What Luck ran 1:00.66 in 5 furlongs on November 15. Despite the break, I feel confident in Oh What Luck getting back to the winner’s circle for a hat-trick that has been over a year in the making.

Race 8 is the feature race at Remington Park on Saturday. This event comes with a $30,000 purse covering 6 furlongs. Big Tiny and Nautical Gem are likely in for big races on Saturday night. Big Tiny is 3 for 13 in her career with a couple of bold bids recently. She finished 1st and 2nd on September 5 and November 1. Big Tiny beat 6 ¾ lengths over Top Hat Charmer in a $9,680 event in September.
She took over the lead at the top of the stretch and drove hard from there to clear the field. Big Tiny was unable to grab back-to-back wins on November 1, but it was still a solid showing to place 2nd behind Upgrade Me by a head. This is obviously a step up in class for Big Tiny, so that’s something to keep in mind. Despite the class hike, it isn’t the trickiest of races. The one horse she must be concerned with is Nautical Gem from the inside rail.
Nautical Gem has gone 3 for 10 in her career, and in the top-3 in five of her previous six outings. Her most recent win was in a $20,060 event in July. Nautical Gem won in a blowout by 7 ¼ lengths. That prompted a jump in class. She has gone 3rd, 2nd, 4th, 3rd since then. Nautical Gem showed 3rd on November 1 in a $30,000 race. This is the same class, but it should be more manageable for Nautical Gem versus this field. I will side with Nautical Gem for the win.
