Oaklawn Park

Race 9

On what would’ve been Kentucky Oaks day, we instead have the $400k Fantasy Stakes for three year old fillies. In a race such as this, we especially prefer to dig deeper into pedigrees. With that said top choice is No. 5 Harvey’s Lil Goil. She’s the son of T.C. winner American Pharoah. This horse’s female family includes Derby and Preakness winner I’ll Have Another. Her trainer is Hall of Famer Bill Mott, and she’s run a longer distance than today. No. 10 British Idiom checks many boxes here. Juvenile fillies champ, comfortable at the distance, and has been here training since March. No. 11 Fire Coral seems ready to break out. Her pedigree is impressive, she seems to have versatility, and her connections have been known to light up the board.
