Saturday's 8th race from Oaklawn Park is the $150,000 Pippin Stakes for fillies and mares traveling one mile on the main track (Post Time 5:47 p.m. ET).
#6 ISTAN COUNCIL (7-2) probably would have won the She’s All In at Remington Park with a better trip. The early-pressing type likes this distance and has won here before.
#3 Getridofwhatailesu (6-1) fired exacta shots in five of six starts. Joe Rocco Jr. takes the call and she will try to get involved late.
#1 Vault (6-1) makes her first start in more than six months and she has the class and numbers to win a race like this. She is 0-for-1 at Oaklawn and 0-for-5 at one mile. She figures to save ground stalking the pace.
#2 Figure It Out (12-1) exits a romping optional claiming victory in a race originally scheduled for turf at Fair Grounds. The early-pressing type enjoys this distance.
#7 Wicked Whisper (3-1) won the Frizette (G1) as a juvenile and captured the Miss Preakness (G3) last year. She flopped in her lone try around two turns in the BC Juvenile Fillies (G1) but was able to handle a one turn mile in the aforementioned Frizette. I don’t really love her in this spot and she might take money win action than she should.
