The press release:

Thorpedo Anna drew off to a convincing victory in Friday’s 150th running of the Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs, giving trainer Kenny McPeek his first win in the marquee event for three-year-old fillies.

Co-owned by Brookdale Racing, Mark Edwards, breeder Judy Hicks, and Sherri McPeek’s Magdalena Racing, Thorpedo Anna went off as the 4-1 second choice after touting herself in the build-up to the Oaks. The daughter of Fast Anna was coming off a sparkling victory in her sophomore debut in the Fantasy (G2) at Oaklawn Park, and she was even more dominant on the first Friday in May.

Under regular rider Brian Hernandez Jr., Thorpedo Anna vied in the opening strides before soon taking control on the sloppy track. When her nearest pursuer, Fiona’s Magic, retreated, Ways and Means accosted her turning for home.

Thorpedo Anna swiftly rebuffed that bid from Ways and Means, only to have champion Just F Y I, the 7-2 favorite, offer a fresh challenge. But Thorpedo Anna had plenty left, and she just pulled away.

Thorpedo Anna negotiated 1 1/8 miles in 1:50.83 and paid $10.98. Just F Y I was a clear second from the rallying Regulatory Risk.

Ways and Means faded to fourth, and Everland got up for fifth. Next came Power Squeeze, Into Champagne, Lemon Muffin, Tarifa, Where’s My Ring, Our Pretty Woman, Gin Gin, Leslie’s Rose, and Fiona’s Magic. Tapit Jenallie and also-eligible Candied were scratched.
