Disposablepleasure Likely for FG Oaks

Disposablepleasure break her maiden by 11 lenghts

Glencrest Farm’s Disposablepleasure, a Todd Pletcher trainee who won Aqueduct’s Grade II Demoiselle last November and was fourth in Gulfstream’s Grade II Davona Dale in her last start Feb. 25, is now expected to invade New Orleans for the Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks, as is Gainesway Thoroughbreds’ Small Kitchen, a Mike Maker-trained filly who is undefeated in two trips to the post, both over the local oval.

 

Expected to head the field in the Fair Grounds Oaks on the penultimate day of the current Crescent City Racing season on March 31 is Gillian Campbell, Greenwood Lodge and R Group Management’s Summer Applause, heroine of Fair Grounds’ Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes Feb. 25 as the designed prep for the Fair Grounds Oaks.

 

The Fair Grounds Oaks is the always-significant local prep for the Kentucky Oaks, which will be contested this spring at Churchill Downs on Friday, May 4. Four of the last seven Fair Grounds Oaks winners have gone on to victory in that season’s Kentucky Oaks.

 

Strong competition for the Bret Calhoun-trained Summer Applause in the Fair Grounds Oaks is expected to come once again from Tall Oaks Farm’s Avie’s Sense, the game Josie Carroll-trained pace maker in the Rachel Alexandra who finished second by a length to Summer Applause in that test after jumping from a 5 3/4-length victory in the maiden ranks into graded stakes competition.

 

Also expected back for the Fair Grounds Oaks is Brereton Jones’s Believe You Can, winner of Fair Grounds’ $125,000 Silverbulletday Stakes Jan. 21 as the initial leg of the local series for sophomore fillies. She went on to finish fourth in the Rachel Alexandra.
