    The fillies never get the press the boys do, but on Friday they get the spotlight in the Longines Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs. On Tuesday the post positions were drawn for the 140th Longines Kentucky Oaks and a field of 13 3-year-old fillies made the entry box for this $1,000,000 Grade 1 event over 1 1/8 miles on the main track.

    As expected, Untapable is the 4-5 morning line favorite despite drawing the far outside post. The Steve Asmussen trainee comes to Louisville off wins in the Rachel Alexandra (G3) and the Fair Grounds Oaks (G2). Regular rider Rosie Napravnik will be in the irons on Friday. In to challenge her include 6-1 second choice Fashion Plate out of post 7, winner of three straight at Santa Anita including the Las Virgenes (G1) and the Santa Anita Oaks (G1). Regular rider Gary Stevens will be in the irons for trainer Simon Callaghan. Two fillies are listed at 8-1 third choice on Mike Battaglia's morning line. Rosalind, dead-heat winner of the Ashland (G1) at Keeneland, drew post 4 for trainer Ken McPeek and regular rider Joel Rosario, while My Miss Sophia, winner of the Gazelle (G2) at Aqueduct, drew post 11 for trainer Todd Pletcher and jockey Javier Castellano.
