BETTING OVERVIEW: Oscar Nominated won the Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati Spiral Stakes on the synthetic Polytrack surface at Turfway Park by a neck and punched his ticket to the Kentucky Derby. The biggest question facing this contender is whether or not he can be effective on dirt. The last winner of the Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park to go on to win the Kentucky Derby was Animal Kingdom in 2011, but that was a rare racehorse that could run on any surface.
