Happy Friday & Kentucky Oaks Day!

We finally made it to the first weekend in May!!! This is one of our favorite weekends of the year and millions around the world will watch the next two days in Louisville, KY at Churchill Downs. Before we get to the run for the roses tomorrow let's not forget what a great day of racing we have today where the fillies will be running for the lillies! Yeah, I know it does not have the same ring but it is what it is and today's featured race, The 150th Kentucky Oaks, will make one filly go down in history! The first Oaks race was held in 1875 and founded by Meriwether Lewis Clark Jr., along with the Kentucky Derby, Clark Handicap and Falls City Handicap. The Oaks and Derby are the oldest continuously contested sporting events in American history. Today's card has 13 total races, 7 stakes races, all graded stakes, and lottsa runners. The featured race comes in race 11, the $1.5M Longines Kentucky Oaks, and will be a 9-furlong route on the dirt track.

We have a bit more information today than normal but that is because we want you to have every opportunity to cash some tickets. The weather today is not great as we will see highs in the mid-70s with thunderstorms most of the day and downpours throughout the day. We will monitor the track condition as we move forward and look for the ponies that like the slop. May of our cappers adjusted their Oaks picks today to account for a possible muddy track.


Need help pickin' winners? We've got you covered! Our #LundinLine - (Always Free) top pick and best bets are below in this post. We use them to help narrow the field while putting our tickets together. The first post will be here soon, so don't be late - It's time to get #InTheMoney! ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿค‘
