Race Recap/Replay

Trained by Brad Cox and ridden by jockey Florent Geroux, Shedaresthedevil gradually inched ahead of Gamine in the stretch and held off Swiss Skydiver‘s bid to win by 1 1/2 lengths in a final time of 1:48.28 for the 1 1/8-mile fast dirt route, a new record for the Kentucky Oaks.

Shedaresthedevil’s win was her third straight and followed an impressive effort in early July’s Indiana Oaks (G3) to improve her record to 10-5-2-2. The 3-year-old Daredevil filly, purchased last November for $280,000, has now earned $1,245,768 for current co-owners Flurry Racing Stables, Qatar Racing, and Big Aut Farms.
