Oaklawn: Tidal Pool opens up at 4-5


Tidal Pool, who was third in last year's Kentucky Oaks, opened up as the 4-5 favorite for the upcoming $75,000 Pippin Stakes at Oaklawn. The mile and a sixteenth race for fillies and mares is the first of three local preps for the Grade 1, $500,000 Apple Blossom. A field of six will go with the scratch of Absinthe Minded, a stablmate of Tidal Pool's who is to run back in an allowance at Oaklawn on Sunday.



The horses are now be lead out to the infield, where the riders will be put up. The Pippin is the first stakes of the meet to have 'riders-up' in the infield.
