Pure Fun Back to Work in Bourbonette Oaks

Post positions for the $100,000 Fathead Bourbonette Oaks (G3) were drawn Wednesday, held at Jack Binion Steak inside Horseshoe Casino Cincinnati. Heavily favored on Battaglia's morning line is Ken McPeek's standout trainee Pure Fun at 8-5.

Pure Fun comes in off two straight wins, most recently the Hollywood Starlet (G1). And as for Uncaptured in the Spiral, the Bourbonette Oaks will be the first start of 2013 for Pure Fun, who raced eight times as a 2-year-old, winning three and finishing second once and third once.

"I normally stop on all my 2-year-olds turning 3 and give them a four- to six-week break," said McPeek. "It's a really good program to give them a little time. Pure Fun had really traveled all around and run a lot of races. She has come back really well and fired a couple of bullets in the morning working with Frac Daddy. All systems are go for Saturday.”

McPeek said he may consider giving Pure Fun one more start after the Bourbonette in preparation for the May 3 Kentucky Oaks (G1).

"It depends on the Kentucky Oaks points standings," he said. "If needed, I could bring her back in the Ashland or the Fantasy."

Garrett Gomez, who rode Pure Fun to victory in the Hollywood Starlet, will be back in the saddle for the Bourbonette.
