The stakes season at Hawthorne may be over, but that means Picks and Ponderings now turns eyes afield to the early-stage Kentucky Derby preps. Sunday the road to the Kentucky Derby visits Oklahoma for the first time, and we delve into that prep, the Remington Springboard Mile.
In addition, we also preview the She’s All In Stakes in detail. The race has a pair of ties to the Chicago circuit. The race’s namesake, She’s All In, achieved her only graded stakes triumph on our local circuit, taking the 2012 Sixty Sails Handicap (G3) at Hawthorne. The field also features the undisputed standout of this year’s Illinois-bred three-year-old crop, Babybluesbdancing.
Head over to Picks and Ponderings for my analysis of this pair of stakes Sunday at Remington Park, as well as my selections for all six stakes on the card, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
