Stellar Wind, riding an impressive three-race winning streak into Churchill Downs, was named the 7-2 morning-line favorite Tuesday for Friday's 141st running of the Kentucky Oaks.
Post time for the $1 million race for 3-year-old fillies — held annually on the day before the Kentucky Derby — is 5:49 p.m. The 11⁄8-mile race will be broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network.
Stellar Wind, owned by Hronis Racing LLC and trained by John Sadler, finished third in her debut last November but has won her three races since by a collective 163/4 lengths, including a 51/4-length romp in the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks on April 4.
I'm a Chatterbox and Condo Commando were made co-second choices Tuesday at 4-1 on the morning line.
Never miss a local story.
Lovely Maria, winner of the Ashland Stakes at Keeneland on April 4, is listed at 5-1.
