Day at the Oaks

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.
