The 2011 Kentucky Oaks will be run in two days and the post positions have been drawn. A field of 13 will contest the 137th running but my longtime number one ranked filly R Heat Lightning is not part of the equation.
R Heat Lightning came down with a problem in her right knee and will
be evaluated at Lexington’s Rod and Riddle clinic later in the week. She
will drop out of my top ten for now but could return to the list later
this year if/when she gets healthy.
