River Downs: Oh So Easy lives up to name


In a race where every entrant was running on turf for the first time, Oh So Easy ($11.40) proved she liked the surface the best when she won the Cincinnatian Stakes for Ohio-bred 3-year-old-fillies by 2 1/2 lengths. My Favorite Girl finished second, while Just Michel, the favorite, finished third. Final time for 1 1/16 miles over a firm course was 1:43.20.

Ridden by Julio Felix and trained by Tim Hamm, Oh So Easy saw her career earnings more than double to over $45,000. She has now won 3 of 11 start
