Picks and Ponderings: American Oaks Day Stakes Preview

This week, Picks and Ponderings turns its attention back to Santa Anita for Saturday’s only graded stakes action.  The card features a trio of graded events, and we preview each in detail.

I preview the American Oaks, the final Grade I of the year.  Sophomore fillies will test their stamina, going a mile and a quarter over the Santa Anita grass.  Paul Mazur previews the rest of the graded stakes action: the Robert J. Frankel (GIII) for older turf mares, as well as the Midnight Lute (GIII) for open dirt sprinters.

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read our preview of Saturday’s graded stakes action, and let us know what you think in the comments!
