  • gatetowire · Honestly, I thinkuntapable is as good as it gets for the Oaks OR the Derby. Hopefully her connections decide on the Oaks, as that may prove a more practical choice in the long run. I was not impressed with Constitution, or Vicar's In Trouble. IMO, both will be In Trouble come Derby day · 18 days ago ·

Winchell Thoroughbreds Untapable proved no disappointment to the fans that backed her down to 1-2 favoritism in Saturday’s Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks.Read More
Winchell Thoroughbreds’ Untapable, much the best when dominating rivals by 9 ½-lengths in the Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes here Feb. 22, may be faced with a more difficult task when she meets Charles Fipke’s $125,000 Silverbulletday Stakes star Unbridled Forever, whose connections passed on tha...Read More

  • Exterminator · I really hope she goes to the Oaks, she's improving and was coming back at Untapable at the end. It is my hope that karma will be resolved at the Oaks. · 20 days ago ·

  • Mary Z. · Floridaf, Untapable must have had some kind of bad trip in the BC Juvenile fillies. I didn't see it live because Jessie had to buy shoes, no kidding, but may be best that we missed it. Then I gave her a race to get over that, so yesterday she was good again. · 54 days ago ·

Saturday’s Grade III Rachel Alexandra Stakes on Louisiana Derby Preview Day Presented by Lamarque Ford at Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots serves as the New Orleans oval’s designed prep for the Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks on Louisiana Derby Day March 29, and Saturday’s preview is shaping up tough eno...Read More
This year’s three-year-old filly division is the definition of wide open. Not a single juvenile miss from last year proved herself superior to the rest in any way. Having said this, it makes perfect sense that the top sophomore fillies of 2014 will likely emerge from the new shooters. Fillies that h...Read More

West Point Thoroughbreds and Tom Keithley’s Flashy Gray, runner-up in Oaklawn’s Grade III Honeybee Stakes March 9 as the odd-on choice of the Arkansas fans, gets a chance to make amends for that defeat when she is pegged as the solid 6-5 morning line choice in Saturday’s $500,000 Fair Grounds Oaks o...Read More
Five of the last eight winners of Saturday’s Grade II Fair Grounds Oaks have gone on to victory in Churchill’s Grade I Kentucky Oaks some weeks later, and locally-based trainer Larry Jones worked Susan Knoll’s Blue Violet five furlongs handily in 1:00.40 Monday in advance of Saturday’s renewal of th...Read More

With yesterday’s disappointing news that the most talented three-year-old filly in the nation, Princess Arabella, has been prematurely retired due to a soft tissue injury, in addition to the season-long absence of the undefeated juvenile filly champion, My Miss Aurelia, it would appear that this yea...Read More
