Ky Oaks day, Casse team in tough

The 132nd Kentucky Oaks will be held Friday at Churchill Downs and Woodbine folks will be cheering for trainer Mark Casse and jockey Patrick Husbands who team up with Top Notch Lady in the nine-furlong classic.
While that filly figures to be a longshot, the Oaks should feature a strong, early pace that will set things up for fillies such as BALANCE, WONDER LADY ANNE L and perhaps LEMONS FOREVER, who has the tricky 14 post.

There are many races of interest at Churchill on Oaks day including the Grade 3 Turf Sprint. Atticus Kristy, hero of the Shakertown Stakes at Keeneland is coming off a big effort but watch out for PARKER RUN as a possible upsetter.

MAIDEN WATCH - Two-year-olds are absent at Woodbine this week but at Belmont and Churchill on Friday, Todd Pletcher babies figure to be prominent (and well bet).
At Belmont, OUT OF GWEDDA (2nd race) had a :21 3/5 workout at the 2yo sale in Ocala in March.
At Churchill, Pletcher trainee ALOTOFAPPEAL has the same time for a workout at that March 2yo sale in Ocala.
