What the Nation is saying about the Kentucky Oaks...

Kentucky Derby hopeful Commanding Curve, ranked No. 23 on the “Road to the Kentucky Derby presented by Twinspires.com” Leaderboard, continued his preparations for a potential start in the “Run for the Roses” with a five-furlong work Friday morning at Churchill Downs in 1:00.40.Read More
Churchill Downs Racetrack (“CDRT”) has released its list of security and hospitality policies and procedures for this year’s 140th celebrations of the Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands on Saturday, May 3, and the Longines Kentucky Oaks on Friday, May 2.Read More
If ever a statement rang true. Oh what a difference a year makes. In last years rendition,the Oaks was a more anticipated race than its more Famous Kentucky Derby. In this years race,Untapable stands head and shoulders over her rivals. Not saying she is as good,but her dominance is on par with Rachels when she ran in the Oaks. The sad part is that likely 2nd choice in the wagering My Sophia holds a similar advantage on the filly or fillies ranked 3rd. Lets hope for great racing from the undercard Stakes. The Oaks promises to be a possible walkover.

  • ekindy · Midnight Lucky was actually nominated for this race. Maybe timing was off, or Baffert didn't want to face Princess too soon, or he found something out west. · 14 days ago ·
  • striped mentality · Bring on Beholder. I'd love to see Beholder win her first race as well, we could have a very fun three way rivalry this year. · 12 days ago ·

  • Floridaf · I like Onlyforyou, but she's been beating up on the same crowd. I'm waiting to see her tangle with the big girls before I get overly excited. · 51 days ago ·
  • tmallios1 · Florida, exactly the same comments that were being tossed around last year with Princess of Sylmar. I remember them,how good could she be if she is running at Aqueducts iner track. Until she lost to Close Hatches,all were questioning her undefeated status. She did not beat anyone they said. · 51 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 ·

  • Floridaf · Rubs, living in Georgia, I cannot bet. However, if I were to bet this race, I would NOT make four win bets. I would use the above four in exotics wagers. · 57 days ago ·
  • ekindy · Maria I feel is the most talented, but she's not all that consistent. Combine that with the draw and that makes for bad news, although I am still big on her for the spring races. For this race though, I'm going with Onlyforyou, though if the price is right I might exacta box the two. · 56 days ago ·
