Date: 5/02/2022

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 Monday morning the post positions were drawn for the 148th Longines Kentucky Oaks and a full field of fourteen 3-year-old fillies (plus one also-eligible) made the entry box for this $1.25 million Grade 1 event over 1 1/8 miles on the main track.

Kathleen O. is the 7-2 second choice, undefeated in 4 starts including the Davona Dale (G2) and Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) both at Gulfstream. Regulr rider Javier Castellano breaks from post 10 for trainer Shug McGaughey. The third choice is Echo Zulu at 4-1, undefeated in 5 starts including the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1) and Fair Grounds Oaks (G2).
