Delaware Park Picks: Crazy Beautiful to deliver in Delaware Oaks

Gulfstream Park Generic Shot

The Grade III Delaware Oaks is the Feature Race on the card at Delaware Park this Saturday. Our editor previews the race along with giving his selections for the card...


The Kenny McPeek trained three-year-old Crazy Beautiful (#7) is the short priced favorite for the Grade III Delaware Oaks at Delaware Park on Saturday. She is one of only two fillies to have even competed at Graded Stakes level and having tasted victory twice - including last time out at Santa Anita in the Grade II Summertime Oaks.

Mike Smith will get the mount again following taking the reins in her win over on the west coast. His style suited the daughter of Liam’s Map well and the combination will likely lead to her being odds-on when all the pool money is incorporated.

"She is doing great," said McPeek in a Press Release from Delaware Park. "We could not be happier with this filly. She handled the race in California pretty handily, so hopefully we will be able to pull off the coast-to-coast bookend and pull off the Santa Anita to Delaware Park double. The Delaware Oaks is a real good spot for her. The money, the grade, and the timing are all what we are looking for. We are excited that Mike Smith is coming back to ride her, and I suspect she will be tough."

Juror Number Four (#4) stepped up last time out to finish fourth in the Grade III Miss Preakness at Pimlico. The Into Mischief filly had a couple of wins on her resume but has only raced the once in 2021. That causes me some concern but if anyone is to give Crazy Beautiful a run for her money - I think it’ll be this three-year-old. The extra distance should suit, so if you are averse to playing very short-price horses then I think you’ll get value here. Real good chance to at least hit the board.

If you are looking to really roll the dice then why not have a play on Orbs Baby Girl (#1). She won the Penn Oaks last time out beating a pretty good horse in Amalfi Princess. A daughter of Orb through Malibu Moon shows decent pedigree and could be used in deep exotics.

The class of the field though is Crazy Beautiful and any other winner would be a real surprise. I would be fairly comfortable on multi-race tickets to have this as a single.
