Seeking The Title Wants Oaks Shot

Charles E. Fipke’s Seeking the Title, a dead-heat third to Quiet Temper in the Fair Grounds Oaks, worked four furlongs on Friday at Churchill Downs as trainer Dallas Stewart continued to keep an eye on the list of graded earnings by Kentucky Oaks contenders in hopes that she would be able to run in America’s premiere race for 3-year-old fillies.

The daughter of Seeking the Gold covered the distance over a fast track in :50.20 under exercise rider Pedro Velez.


“She worked good and came back good,” said Stewart, who scored the biggest upset in Oaks history when he won the race with Lemons Forever in 2006.  “We didn’t want to go too fast – just a medium work.  She’s a very explosive-type filly through the stretch, so we’re just hoping we get to run.”


Seeking the Title has only $21,000 in graded earnings for the Oaks, which is limited to 14 starters with preference to 3-year-old fillies with the highest total earnings in graded stakes races.  She was tied for 21st on this week’s list of fillies considered “likely” or “possible” for the Oaks.
