The Kentucky Oaks, the "Desperate Housewives" of horse races, goes off today with promises of a Queen, rain, rain, and more rain. Yet another element that only compilcates this thing we call handicapping. The favorite, #11 Rags to Riches, has all but dismantled the best 3 year old fillies on the curcuit all season, going a perfect 3 for 3 this year. This Todd Pletchter trained filly will look to stalk the pace, and assuming the mud isn't a problem, could walk home. But don't overlook stable mate #4 Octave. The Unbridled's Song filly came up a nose short in Keeneland's Ashland Stakes, but she's been strong in recent workouts, showing no ill effects from the loss. Don't count out #7 Dreaming of Anna. The BC JF champ has faltered in her only 2 starts of the year, but you have to think she's going to pick up a quality win at some point...recent works show this might be it. To commemorate this year's Oaks, here's a post I composed last year detailing my run in with Football legend and double murderer OJ Simpson at last year's Oaks. Enjoy, and check out the site later today as I'll have a breakdown of all 20 horses for tomorrow's Derby. Intern out.
