Oaklawn: No Changes in Fantasy

Email

There are no changes to the Grade 2, $300,000 Fantasy, which opens up the Racing Festival of the South at Oaklawn. During the festival, the track cards nine stakes worth at least $2.8 million over the final six dates of its meet. The Fantasy is expected to produce starters for the Kentucky Oaks as the field includes multiple Grade 1 winner Blind Luck.

Temperatures are in the 70s, and after and overcast morning in Hot Springs the skies have cleared and it is sunny at Oaklawn. The fillies should have a fast track for the Fantasy.

In the third race, jockey Jon Court appeared to avoid serious injury after being thrown from his mount soon after the start.
