Sean's Take...

I was so high on this filly heading into the year based on a deceptively strong win in the G2 Golden Rod to close out her juvenile campaign, and although it took her a start to validate my confidence in her she showed last out in the G2 Fair Grounds Oaks that she’s at the top of this division. I’m not a big horse-for-course guy, but I do appreciate that she ran so well in the Golden Rod over this track, and I trust her trainer Brad Cox to have her primed for a career-best effort in her third start of the year. She’s a very likely winner of this race.

J.N's Take...

This Brad Cox filly took the N’awlins-Oaks Series route to Louisville, and she clearly has the back class to take on all challengers. Her conditioner spotted her well, and though she missed in the Grade II 300k Rachel Alexandra (lost by less than a neck), she has displayed some powerful moves during the 2nd half of each of her races. I would expect that to continue, as she has already shipped to Cox’s base at Churchill and has a pair of good works under her saddle. What makes this filly truly special is her bloodline through Frosted, a rising sire in the ranks. I don’t know whether he has the power to rival Into Mischief, but certainly the potential exists to make a major impact when it comes to Grade I wins. The steady hand of Florent Geroux can once again be viewed as an asset. It speaks volumes that Cox puts him on all of his best stock—Monomoy Girl, Bonny South, etc . . .  Big chance to score a double for this now elite trainer in the Oaks-Derby. Grade: A-
