Kentucky Oaks 146: Post Positions, Morning Lines Set

The field is set for the 146th running of the Kentucky Oaks.

This Friday nine horses will load the gates at Churchill Downs as the best three-year-old fillies race for the garland of lilies. This 1 1/8 miles race pits two of the sport’s superstars head to head for the first time, Swiss Skydiver and Gamine.

Out of Bob Baffert’s barn, Gamine is the 1-1 ML favorite, just ahead of Swiss Skydiver at 8-5. Gamine has dominated competition to this point, with an asterisk: she was one of two Baffert horses that failed a drug test at Oaklawn Park after winning on the Arkansas Derby undercard on the first Saturday in May. Swiss Skydiver came in second to the boys in the Blue Grass Stakes before bouncing back with a 3 1/2-length win in the Alabama Stakes at Saratoga.

The purse for the Kentucky Oaks is $1.25 million. Post time is set for 5:45 pm on Friday, Sept. 4.

    Imagine putting an advert in the middle of an article. Good grief.

    Imagine one day being mature enough to let what one considers to be a negative comment roll of his back and completely ignore it?
