Kentucky Oaks 2022 Preview

With  rain in the forecast for Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, racers could contend with a wet and muddy track on Friday in the Kentucky Oaks. The Courier Journal’s Jason Frakes described it as potentially a “sloppy track”.

“We don’t get to train and race much on ‘off’ tracks in California,”  horse trainer Phi D’Amato said per Frakes. “Both my fillies have off-track pedigrees, but you really don’t know how that works until you see it. I guess there’s a chance we’ll find out Friday.”

D’Amato works with Desert Dawn, which will race amid the 15-horse field in Kentucky Oaks. D’Amato will also field Ain’t Easy in the Eight Belles Stakes, which falls on the same day.

Frakes noted that less than half of the Kentucky Oaks field has raced on some kind of “off track” whether wet, muddy, or sloppy.

Contenders among horses with off track experience include Cocktail Moments, Echo Zulu, Kathleen O, Nest, Secret Oath, and Venti Valentine.

Nest took first and Cocktail Moments took second in Ashland on April 8 in Lexington, Kentucky. Cocktail Moments has one career win plus a second place finish and two third-place finishes. Nest has four wins and one third-place finish.

Echo Zulu won the Spinway at Saratoga Springs, New York, in September 2021. Echo Zulu has won every race career race (5-0) so far.

Kathleen O, which also has a perfect mark in races (4-0) won a race in November 2021 at Aqueduct in New York.

Secret Oath took third in an October 2021 race at Churchill Downs. Secret Oath has four career wins and two third-place finishes.

Venti Valentine won the Maid of Mist at Belmont in New York in October 2021. Venti Valentine has three wins and two second-place finishes.

Horses with no off track experience in the Kentucky Oaks include Nostalgic, Hidden Connection, Goddess of Fire, Yuugiri, Candy Raid, Shahama, Beguine, and Turnerlosse.

Nostalgic has three career wins amid five starts. Hidden Connection has two wins and a second-place finish. Goddess of Fire has one win, three second-place finishes and a third-place finish. Yuugiri has two wins, two second-place finishes, and one third-place finish.

Candy Raid has three wins in 10 career starts. Shahama has won all career races (4-0) thus far. Beguine has one career win, a second-place finish, and a third-place finish. Turnerloose has a three career wins and a third-place finish in six career starts.
