Kentucky Oaks


Look for Restless Rider to lay just off the pace in a stalking position behind the frontrunners. The key will be for her to get over and save ground around the first turn. Will be along in time. It’s hard to find fault in the performances to date of Bellafina. The only out of the money result occurred over this Churchill Downs surface in last year’s Breeder’s Cup Juvenile Fillies. She will be a tough contender in here. I also look for Chocolate Kisses to rebound off her last race and Jeltrin to prove her last wasn’t a fluke to round out my top picks. My plays are #14 Restless Rider  Win/Place, Exacta box #4 Bellafina and #11, Exacta Key #14 over #2 Chocolate Kisses and #11 Jeltrin, Tri Key #14 over #2, #4 and #11.
