1-11. Couldn't keep that Opening Day roll going - but three of our second picks won and there were a couple reverse exactas in the mix. Winner in R1 [$7.60].

30,708 attended. Still hot and humid - although it was overcast most of the day, which moderated the temps... And produced a late afternoon shower.


Ballcap giveaway - free with paid admission while supplies last.
Storm Pursuit...In good form at this level.
Chelios...Should Contend with this bunch.
Gambler's Ghost.

Realism... Sib Emollient was a "best bet" for us here in 2014 when she ran a just-miss second at 18-1 in debut for the same team.
Teresa Z...Pletcher trainee gets second chance - with a switch in surface and distance.
Majestic Bonnie...Worked 21.1 before sale.
Price Too High.

Portando...Typically in the hunt.
Evolution...In good form.
Bird Song... Looks to have figured it out.
Delta Outlaw.

Barbie on a Budget.
Grassarla...Sib R Betty Graybull ran 3, 1 in first two starts.
Askfor Forgiveness...Off the latest.

Dauphine Russe...First off the claim for Servis.
Angie's Prim Lady...Daingerous on the class relief.
Goodbye Sorrow...Solid in 2016.
You Lie.

Bluegrass Sunset... Taking a shot with a firster with some precocious breeding. Sib Partisan Politics was third in debut and then won next out - the PG Johnson here in 2014 - for Chad.
Church Social...Dangerous.
More Than KissesCapable vs these.

Coalport Class drop off long layoff - but solid work.
Old Time Hockey...In for a tag.
Farhaan...Has run well on turf.

Picco Uno...Off the nice improving win.
Sabrina Ballerina...Similar scenario to top pick.
Super Surprise...Dangerous on the class move.
Day After Day.

Sympathy...Chad trainee has been in the mix in all 2016 starts.
Now Power...Speed.
Kitzys Rocket...Last two were good.
Off Limits.
Kitten's Roar.

TENTH RACE - G1 $300K CCA Oaks
Carina Mia...G1 Acorn was a super-solid 3YO filly field and she dusted them. Workout reports good. We'll look for the slight upset.
Songbird... Undefeated 2YO filly champ has kept it going this season - but against what? Gets the test today - might come through with flying colors but if we're going to take a shot against this seem like a spot to try.
Weep No More...If the top two falter this gal is eligible to pick up the pieces - but it's a big "IF".
Mo d'Amour.

Data Driven...Chad/Klaravich runner is likely better than the latest effort.
Mav...Looks to fit off the latest.
Inventor's Gate...Also should be competitive here.
Gracious Plenty.

If we are interested in both halves of an entry -- in event of a scratch -- it is noted that way [in other words, both halves are named]. If only one-half of the entry is named, then we prefer that half and will move to our next pick listed [rather than the other half of the entry] in event of a scratch.
