Fair Grounds: Silverbulletday looks like a match race

Email

NEW ORLEANS – That trainers Larry Jones and Dallas Stewart have the top 3-year-old fillies in the Silverbulletday Stakes comes as no surprise. Jones and Stewart have combined to win the Kentucky Oaks – the ultimate early-season goal for such horses – three of the last eight years. Jones won in 2012 with Believe You Can and in 2008 with Proud Spell, while Stewart upset the 2006 Oaks with Lemons Forever.
