KY Oaks Selections


Today the Oaks, Tomorrow the Derby

Recovering from Lumbar Spine Surgery is slow, leaving much on my plate that has not gotten attended to, like this blog. With the KY Derby-Oaks combination, we have to say something. So, today a short update and KY Oaks selections. Later or early tomorrow, we’ll send Derby selections.

Ahvee’s Destiny was moved to a farm, but now she has more problems with her hooves. Our poor little girl! She may have to return to the clinic.

Nicodemus won an allowance race on March 10. That was the day i was discharged from the hospital, so we got to see the race on TV. It was very exciting. He won by a head from another one of Linda’s horses. He runs tomorrow in the Grade 3 Westchester Stakes.We’ll be there.

Tzipi won on the grass on April 10. She came on to win her maiden Special Weight by a neck. Unfortunately, she bled and has been given time off at Patty Hogan’s, where she is eating well and enjoying herself.

We sold Aunt Glo 17 and took a hit, since we got less than half what we put into her. I’m told I need to take the losses and assume some of our stock will sell at a premium. Let’s hope that’s right.  I might end up with a million dollar stable… that cost us $2 million or more!

Here’s what I bet on the Oaks:
$15 Win & Place on #3, Lady Apple = $30
$3 Exacta on 4 (Bellafina)/2+3+6+8+9 = $15
$.50 Trifecta on 3/1+2+4/1+2+4+7+8+14 =$7.50
$.50 Trifecta on 3+10/1+2+4+7+8+11+14/3+10 = $7
$.50 Trifecta on 3+10/3+10/1+2+4+7+8+14 = $6
$2 Exacta on 1+4+7/3+10 = $12
$1 Exacta on 3+10/1+2+3+4+7+8+10+14 = $14
TOTAL $91.50
