Stellar Wind will be looking for a fourth straight victory when the 7-2 favorite takes on 13 rivals in Friday’s $1 million Kentucky Oaks, the top 3-year-old race for fillies run the day before the Kentucky Derby.
The filly trained by John Sadler has won both starts this year by a combined eight lengths and will be ridden by Victor Espinoza, who will be aboard favorite American Pharoah in the Derby. Stellar Wind won the Santa Anita Oaks in her last start.
The field is a tough one that includes Condo Commando, who has won five of six starts, and I’m a Chatterbox, unbeaten in three starts this year. They are co-second choices at 4-1.
Lovely Maria is 5-1 with two wins in three starts, including the Ashland on April 4.
Post time for the 1-1/8-mile Oaks in 5:49 p.m. ET.
