Posts set for Kentucky Oaks

04/29/2014 01:23 PM

The field is now set for the 140th running of the $1 million Longines Kentucky Oaks.

Jockey Rosie Napravnik, with whom CN2 Sports talked with last week will be riding the 4-5 morning-line favorite Untapable.. The Steve Asmussen-trained filly will be breaking from post position 13. A very unlucky position as no horse has won the Kentucky Oaks from that post in 13 tries.

Fashion Plate, ridden by hall of famer Gary Stevens, is the second choice at 6-1 and will break from post position 7.

Todd Pletcher, looking for his second straight Oaks victory, sends 8-1 My Miss Sophia into post position 11. She will be ridden by jockey Javier Castellano.

Here is a list of the complete field:

1 PLEASE EXPLAIN 50-1
2 RIA ANTONIA 10-1
3 SUGAR SHOCK 12-1
4 ROSALIND 8-1
5 THANK YOU MARYLOU 30-1
