Weemissfrankie, third in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies at Churchill Downs on Friday, may start again this year, and has the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill on May 4 as a long-term goal, trainer Peter Eurton said on Sunday.


Weemissfrankie was beaten nine lengths by My Miss Aurelia in the Juvenile Fillies, the first loss of her four-race career. Earlier this year, Weemissfrankie won a maiden race and two Grade 1 races – the Del Mar Debutante and Oak Leaf Stakes at Santa Anita.


Eurton said that Weemissfrankie could return for the $250,000 Hollywood Starlet Stakes over 1 1/16 miles at Hollywood Park on Dec. 10, or be rested for the 3-year-old fillies stakes at the Santa Anita winter-spring meeting.
