Kentucky Oaks runner-up St. John's River worked six furlongs in 1:13.60 at her Louisiana Downs base on Sunday in preparation for the Grade 2, $300,000 Delaware Oaks on July 9. The race will be her first start since the Oaks at Churchill Downs. St. John's River races for Dede McGehee and is trained by Andrew Leggio Jr.
