HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Trainer Bob Baffert will try to win the $600,000 Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park for the fourth time in a row on Saturday.

Baffert has two horses entered, including the 3-2 morning-line favorite Super Ninety Nine, who won the Southwest Stakes last month by 11 1/4 lengths.

Todd Pletcher-trained Delhomme is making his first start of the year and opened as the 7-2 second choice. D. Wayne Lukas is running two horses, with Oxbow opening at 4-1 and coming off a second-place finish in the Lecomte Stakes at the Fair Grounds.

The Rebel is a prep for the $1 million Arkansas Derby on April 13, and offers a total 85 qualifying points for the Kentucky Derby on May 4. The winner earns 50 points, with 20 for second, 10 for third and 5 for fourth.
