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.
