    Success - once again - for Churchill Downs for Oaks Day!

    A historical 139th running of the $1 million Longines Kentucky Oaks (Grade I) at Churchill Downs Racetrack on Friday, May 3, concluded with record all-sources wagering on the Oaks race and the Oaks Day race card, record on-track wagering for the Oaks race, as well as the second-highest attendance record of 113,820 and a long-shot victory by Princess of Sylmar to win America’s premier race for 3-year-old fillies. The highest Kentucky Oaks attendance record of 116,046 was established in 2010.

    Wagering from all-sources on the full 12-race Kentucky Oaks Day race card totaled a record $45.8 million, an increase of 14.7 percent from the 2012 total of $39.9 million. Record all-sources wagering on the Kentucky Oaks race rose 21.4 percent to $14.4 million. On-track wagering on the Oaks Day race card increased 4.7 percent to a near-record $12.2 million, just $34,000 short of the established record in 2007. Record on-track wagering on the Oaks race increased 19.2 percent to $3.1 million.

    No fun for Pure Fun who tried to take on the boys in the Lexington Stakes at Keeneland and then flopped at the Oaks ... poor gal

    Pure Fun out indefinitely with ankle injury

    Ken McPeek said his Kentucky Oaks starter, Pure Fun, will be sidelined indefinitely after being diagnosed with what he described as “an ankle issue” following the filly’s sixth-place finish Friday in the filly classic at Churchill Downs.

    At 3, Pure Fun has not returned to the form that carried her to victory in the Grade 1 Hollywood Starlet in December.

    “It’s nothing major, and we’re still trying to determine whether it’ll require surgery or not,” McPeek said earlier this week.
