Chicago Railbird goes to Oaklawn

This weekend, Chicago Railbird flies south again, this time for the King Cotton Stakes at Oaklawn.

In true Chicago Railbird fashion, I take a look at Illinois-breds who have done well in the race in the past.  I also take a detailed look at tomorrow’s renewal of the King Cotton.  The race drew a field of eight.  Two of the runners were bred in Illinois — and one has a very good chance of becoming the second Illinois-bred to get his picture taken after the King Cotton.

Head over to ShapperDaCapper, read the latest Chicago Railbird, and get ready for tomorrow’s featured race at Oaklawn!


    1. he’s gorgeous! i didn’t see his maiden win since it was on a weekday…but i did see him at Churchill, when he ran in that allowance on the Derby undercard. his blaze makes me so happy! i really like Santo Sanjur’s pose in that photo you posted. he’s like…”nope, i see no one anywhere nearby!”
