Plum Pretty Heavy Favorite in La Troienne

Plum Pretty Apple Blossom

Plum Pretty, the 4-5 morning line favorite, takes on six rivals in Friday's Grade 2 La Troienne for fillies and mares at Churchill Downs. 

 

Last year's Kentucky Oaks returned in the pink at Oaklawn Park in the Grade 1 Apple Blossom three weeks ago. Bob Baffert gives Rafael Bejarano a leg up.

 

St. John's River, a neck behind Plum Pretty in the 2011 Kentucky Oaks, maker her first start in more than eight months. The stretch runner reunites with Rosie Napravnik.

 

Afleeting Lady breaks from the rail for trainer Dale Romans. She likes Churchill Downs and was last seen landing the place in a local graded route in November.

 

Juanita and Absinthe Minded figure to mix it up from the outset. The former set the the pace and was clearly second best behind Havre de Grace last time. The latter held the place behind Plum Pretty in the Apple Blossom on April 13. 

 

Late runners Love Theway Youare and Maristar round out the field.
