Churchill Downs // Kentucky Oaks Day

Happy Friday! It is the start of the weekend, but, more importantly, it's Kentucky Oaks Day at Churchill Downs! Yes, it is the day before the Kentucky Derby and we get to celebrate with a card that features 13 races, an avalanche of runners and features 7 stakes, featuring - of course - Race 11, the $1.25 Million Grade I Longines Kentucky Oaks. Still hungry? Check out the below Stakes Schedule for the rest of today's card:

Stakes Schedule:

R5: $250K Modesty (GIII-T)

R6: $750K La Troienne (GI)

R7: $500K Alysheba (GII)

R8: $500K Edgewood (GII-T)

R9: $500K Eight Belles (GII)

R10: $500K Twin Spires Turf Sprint (GII-T)

R11: $1.25 Million Longines Kentucky Oaks (GI)

If this doesn't get you ready for the Kentucky Derby, you're pretty much a lost cause. Just kidding. Well, kind of.

Running conditions are looking great to start the day with firm turf, a fast track and temperatures around 70. The folks at the weather channel are calling for thunderstorms in the afternoon, so watch for delays and scratches. Let's hope those weather people are as wrong as rain.

Let's check out today's Best Value Horse (♣BVH) for Churchill Downs:

Race 7


M/L: 8-1

Brad Cox brings this colt from Into Mischief to Oaks Day coming off another stakes win at Oaklawn last time out beating the heavy favorite Cezanne. After a poor start where he got squeezed out of the gate & trialing the majority of the race Fulsome rallied and wore down the field even on a wide trip. This multiple stakes winner looks to follow up this strong performance by winning just like last year at the Churchill Spring meet where Fulsome again stalked from the back of the field to finish strong over O Besos who went on to win his next race. Florent Geroux is in the irons and this is his third mount of the day for Cox. While there are horses in this race you may have heard of we feel the value is on Fulsome to compete down the stretch which is enough to be our Best Value Horse today!
