Tomorrow evening is the Kentucky Oaks, the Lillies for the Fillies! With that being said, it is time for the Horse Racing Station Selections! This is a pretty tough field with two strong favorites in Stellar Wind and Condo Commando. However, I will shy against the favorites and go towards some of the bigger prices and horses that hopefully will make a nice run. My top pick is Puca. She should be back to being a closer unlike how she was in the Gazelle. I liked her run in the Gazelle and think that she is ready to step up. Only problem is the post, but if she runs as a closer, she should be a factor. Behind Puca is Oceanwave. Getting Rafael Bejarano aboard, Oceanwave has been improving. Another good closer, should relish the long stretch. She should have won last time out but was beaten by another closer. Finally, Birdatthewire who has been on my radar for the past few months seems like a good choice to round out the Trifecta. Her Forward Gal was impressive and then her win in the Gulfstream Park Oaks really made me focus in on her. Below them, I would put Stellar Wind.
- WPS on 14-Puca
- Trifecta 14,10/14,10,13/14,10,13,12,8
- Superfecta 14/10,13,12/10,13,12,8,2/10,13,12,8,2,5
Tomorrow, I will have my Kentucky Derby selections. But for now, happy handicapping!
