The Cincinnati Trophy on March 1, and the Busher and Davona Dale on March 2 were the latest road to Kentucky Oaks 2024 points races. In this report, I will look back at those events and update my “Fabulous 5” Oaks contenders.  The next points race on the schedule is the Grade 3 Santa Ysabel on March 9. That race was originally slated for March 3 but was rescheduled due to rainy weather.

Kentucky Oaks 2024 Points Race Recaps

Cincinnati Trophy (3-1-24) 

Fractions: 24.03, 47.11, 1:11.57, 1:24.28, 1:37.31

Top 5 Finishers: Maxisuperfly, Barbratina, Living Magic, Everland, Cozee Rags

Maxisuperfly stole this one on the front end. She broke on top and remained a length clear for most of the running. She opened up by 2 1/2 lengths in the lane and tallied by a length and a half over Barbratina. The latter rallied from off the pace and was making up nice ground in the lane, but the winner had a nice cushion and this one was clearly second best. My top choice Living Magic, making her first start since October, stalked the pace and failed to quicken in an even show finish. Barbratina seems like she wants more ground and might move up in a longer race next time.
