Kentucky Oaks: Hard Not to Like works at Woodbine


Ashland Stakes runner-up Hard Not to Like had her final tune-up for the Kentucky Oaks at Woodbine on Friday morning, going five furlongs in 1:01.60 on the dirt training track.

Luis Contreras was aboard for the drill but Robby Albarado has the call for the Kentucky Oaks, a 1 1/8-mile race which offers Grade 1 status and a purse of $1 million.

Hard Not to Like, trained by Gail Cox, is scheduled to ship out for Churchill Downs on Tuesday morning.
