Farrell rising to top of her class


The news this week that Unique Bella, the fastest filly of her generation, was out of the Kentucky Oaks with an apparently minor injury totally changed the divisional landscape. A week ago, Farrell, the best 3-year-old filly at Fair Grounds, had Unique Bella blocking her path, but with another strong performance Saturday in the Grade 2, $400,000 Fair Grounds Oaks, Farrell will go to Kentucky as one of the favorites for the Oaks at Churchill Downs.
