Kentucky Oaks pick: Looking to the Sky

Miss Sky Warrior

The weather isn’t the only reason to look to the sky on Oaks Day.

Race 11 | Grade I Longines Kentucky Oaks | 1 1/8 miles 

  1. Miss Sky Warrior
  2. Paradise Woods
  3. Farrell
  4. Abel Tasman

Comment: Miss Sky Warrior is on a five-race win streak, is as accomplished as Paradise Woods and might be a better price at the window than Paradise Woods. Paradise Woods, the favorite, would be no surprise and has shown tremendous talent in winning two of just three starts, including the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks by 11 lengths. Farrell is on a four-race win streak, but probably is a step below the top pair. Abel Tasman gets blinkers and figures to be in the mix. The longshot of interest is Vexatious. She’s finished well in all her preps despite troubled trips at nearly every turn.
