I wouldn't be surprised if she lost it going around the last turn. She was digging in so hard, leaning into the turn as she accelerated past horses, that there must have been a good bit of torque on that shoe. :P

ETA: Now, I hope that Lady Eli also wins, although she's facing a salty bunch in the Jenny Wiley.

It makes my heart swell to see the sparkling quality of the Turf Distaff division in the US right now. That Jenny Wiley field is only missing Tepin and Miss Temple City, it's practically a BC race.

ETA: Lady Eli is prancing beautifully in the post parade, it almost looks like a passage, perfect suspension and all :lol:

Heartbreaking defeat but wow, Dickinson ran her eyeballs out.
Disappointed in CAG here.

Well, I was rooting for Dickinson to come in 2nd. Wanted Lady Eli to win. Nice race for both. Godolphin/McLaughlin are on fire today.

It seemed like Lady Eli relaxed a bit when she got the lead. May have just opened the door for Dickenson. Great race by both mares.

That's what I saw, too. Either that, or she was just a tad short off the layoff. Good race by both mares.

If I'm google-translating right, looks like Soul Stirring (JPN) is pointed to the Oaks in Tokyo on May 21. :mrgreen:

Paradise Woods turns in her last pre-Kentucky Oaks workout. Mandella is giddy about it.

Mandella breezed Paradise Woods an easy 3F a few days before the SA Oaks. I have always liked to see that kind of old school stuff from a trainer like Mandella.

Reading on Twitter that Fan Dii Na (JPN) will not race in the Oaks but will be pointed to an August comeback. :?

She was sort of coming unglued before the Satsuki Sho a few weeks ago. Maybe she needs a mental vacation even more than a physical freshening?

The only semi-official thing I've seen is this: https://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=2017 ... nspo-horse (you'll have to google translate)

Basically sounds like she's tired and needs turnout. And I misread "autumn" for "August" - sounds more like October.
