Peachtree Stable’s Plum Pretty proved her 25 length win last time out in the Sunland Park Oaks was no fluke, taking the lead turning for home in the $1,000,000 Kentucky Oaks (G1), opening up daylight and holding on to win by a neck. It’s the second stakes win for the 3-year-old daughter of Medaglia d’Oro, sold for $130,000 by Kirkwood Stables, Agent, at the 2010 OBS March Sale. She’s now 5-3-0-2 with earnings of $761,200.

Last year’s Kentucky Oaks winner, Mark Dedomenico LLC, John Carver, Peter Abruzzo & Jerry Hollendorfer’s champion Blind Luck, returned to Churchill Downs last Friday, and after stumbling at the start, stormed from last to first to win the $333,900 La Troienne Stakes (G2) by half a length. Fellow OBS graduate All Due Respect (March ’09, August ’08, October ’07) checked in third. It’s the first win of the year for the 4-year-old daughter of Pollard’s Vision, consigned to the 2009 OBS April Sale by Omega Farm, Agent. The 2010 champion 3-year-old filly is now 19-10-7-2 and has earned $2,679,520.
