Dreaming Of Julia Early Favorite For Friday's Oaks
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A field of eleven is entered for Friday’s running of the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill Downs. The morning-line favorite is Dreaming of Julia. The Todd Pletcher-trained entry is coming off a nearly 22 length victory last month in the Gulfstream Park Oaks. She’ll be ridden by John Velazquez and will break from post position eight.
Two contenders, Beholder and Unlimited Budget, have early odds of 7-2. Midnight Lucky is next in the early oddsmaking at 9-2.
Post positions for the fillies-only Kentucky Oaks were drawn this (Tues) morning.
The 139th Oaks will be run Friday at 5:45pm (Eastern time)
