Oaklawn: Prep for Martha Washington?


The upcoming eighth race could produce starters for some of the 3-year-old filly stakes this meet at Oaklawn, the next of which is the $75,000 Martha Washington on Feb. 12. The Larry Jones-trained entry of Summer Soiree and Raised With Pride is the current favorite at 2-1. The field for the first-level allowance at a mile and a sixteenth also includes Switching Gears, who ships up from Fair Grounds for trainer Steve Margolis and Hearts On Fire, an impressive debut winner at Remington Park for trainer Donnie Von Hemel.

As for a paddock report, the fillies all looked good. However, Brushed With a Star's physique suggests she might really like the move to two turns. She is a daughter of Eddington and goes for trainer Grant Forster.
