Fantasy Stakes Contender Spotlight: Shedaresthedevil

HOT SPRINGS, AR – Flurry Racing Stables, Qatar Racing, and Big Aut Farms’ Shedaresthedevil will try to make it two in a row over the local strip in Friday’s $400,000 Fantasy Stakes (G3) at Oaklawn Park.

Shedaresthedevil won for trainer Norm Casse in her initial unveiling, a 5 1/2-furlong dirt sprint at Churchill Downs last June, then shipped west to join the Simon Callaghan barn. She ran second, third, and fourth in a trio of stakes tries in California before changing hands at auction in November.

Sent to trainer Brad Cox for her 2020 campaign, Shedaresthedevil got caught late in her first start, a 1 1/16-mile allowance/optional claiming event at Oaklawn Park. She turned the tables next time out, winning the Honeybee Stakes (G3) over the same course and distance on March 7. Though she loses Joe Talamo – aboard for both Oaklawn Park starts – to another rival, she attracts Joel Rosario, who has won eight of 33 mounts (24%) for Cox dating back to 2019.
