Kentucky Oaks Day, 2022 and first things first. The answer to the trivia question. There were several attempts and no correct guesses to the Kentucky Derby question of what year did the winner come in 7th?
This is a great bar trivia question that has won more than a few bets. The answer is 1896. A horse named “The Winner” ran 7th. Thank you to all who tried
Churchill Downs Race 2 - $120K Maiden Special
Fillies and mares, 3yo’s↑ going one mile
I am taking the lone speed, 12-Olga Isabel, a Tiznow filly who raced in early March at Gulfstream before shipping to Churchill. In that race, she led coming into the stretch and fought the eventual winner before tiring to fourth place. She has had a steady run of increasingly improvement of works, including her last, a 1:00.3 bullet.
Churchill Dows Race 11 – The $1.25M, Grade 1, 147th running of the Kentucky Oaks
3yo fillies going nine furlongs
I am taking a shot on 3-Hidden Connection (20/1) who was last seen just missing by, a nose to 7-Echo Zulu (4/1) in the Fair Grounds Oaks. She has a win over the track and has been working forwardly for today.
For the Bettorsinsider.com handicapping contest, I am going all $50 to win on her.
