Rachel Alexandra Vulnerable in the Kentucky Oaks

Apr 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Churchill

How can I pick against a horse who shares the name of  my daughter (Alexandra)?  When the horse is a big favorite (3-5) and flow of the race does not favor her running style!

Rachel Alexandra will be the big favorite in the Kentucky Oaks on Friday, but she likes to run on the lead and will have some fast company to challenge her early.  Look for Gabby’s Golden Gal and maybe Flying Spur to be up close with the favorite and set the race up for a closer.  Just Whistle Dixie fits the bill and will be the second choice.  I’m betting her to win and in exactas with Flying Spur and Rachel Alexandra.

Good luck!
