THE OAKS – It’s all about the Fillies … and the pink
The weather was perfect, fillies spectacular, and the pink was everywhere. Wearing pink for the Oaks to show support for breast cancer research has become as much a tradition as wearing a hat for the Derby.
Lovely Maria appropriately took the title as queen of the day by winning the Oaks against a very talented field. Long shot Shook Up (also appropriately named) held for second, and I’m A Chatterbox closed for third.
Lightly raced Lovely Maria has improved with every race. Very exciting to see her in the Black-eyed Susan.
