What the Nation is saying about the 2009 American Oaks (G1)...

Gozzip Girl was simply a monster on Sunday... very impressive!

Gozzip Girl comes out of the Sands Point, which IMO was weak on competition for a G2. Warm Shower (2nd) was coming off a MSW win on the poly at KEE and Bluegrass Princess (3rd) ran 6th in the G3 Boiling Springs at MTH. I pay attentioni to trainer quotes and Zucker, trainer of Well Monied, called Euro Apple Charlotte "scary." · 1830 days ago ·
