Kentucky Oaks update (4-19-19)

The final Kentucky Oaks 2019 points race took place at Oaklawn Park on Friday, April 12, and Lady Apple ran by Mixed Emotion to win by the Fantasy Stakes (G2) by a length.


Kentucky Oaks 2019 Points Race Recaps


Fantasy Stakes (G3) Recap from Oaklawn Park (4-12-19) - Winner: Lady Apple ($21.60)


Lady Apple sat the perfect trip in this 8.5 furlong affair. Mixed Emotion set the pace as expected, but I was concerned that she would use too much early energy. Plus, she was never going to offer any wagering value under Mike Smith. She gamely hung in there throughout and swatted away my top choice Brill. Her test was not complete, because Lady Apple was stalking the pace and lurking inside, and she squeezed through in the stretch and won by a length under Ricardo Santana Jr. Mixed Emotion was a bit less than a length in front of Brill for 2nd, and they were followed across the line by Orra Moor, Irish Mischief, Cosmic Code, Super Tap, Destiny Over Fate, K P Slickem, Oxy Lady, and Filly Joel.
