HONEYBEE AND RAZORBACK HIGHLIGHT THE ACTION AT OAKLAWN
A pair of graded stakes will be contested at Oaklawn Park on Saturday, led by the $125,000 Razorback H. (G3). A smart field is lined up for this endeavor, including last year's Fountain of Youth (G2) victor Winslow Homer. The son of Unbridled's Song hoping to get back to his best form and was last seen taking the Curlin S. at Saratoga in the summer for Tony Dutrow by nine lengths.
Win Willy took the fifth Season S. two back and could peak in his third off the bench for Mac Robertson. The gray son of Monarchos promises to be a late threat in this one with something near his best. Essex H. winner Kate's Main Man, 2010 Smarty Jones S. star Thiskyhasnolimit and Essex third Stachys also figure to be players in this well-matched group.
Grade 1-placed Joyful Victory could make her seasonal debut in this one for Larry Jones, and was last seen finishing a good fifth in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies S. (G1). The well-bred daughter of Tapit has flashed big potential in all three career starts and is likely the one to beat off the bench.
Martha Washington S. queen Holy Heavens and Demoiselle S. (G2) star Dixie City appear to be the main contenders to challenge the likely choice.
