Race Recap/Replay

On Friday, April 30, 2021, Shadwell Stable’s Malathaat won the 147th running of the $1.25 million Longines Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs. Trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by jockey John Velazquez, Malathaat overtook Search Results in mid-stretch to win by a neck in a final time of 1:48.99 for the 1 1/8-mile fast dirt route.

Malathaat’s win was her fifth from as many starts, including stakes scores in the Tempted and the Demoiselle (G2) at Aqueduct last year and the Ashland (G1) at Keeneland 4 weeks ago. Malathaat is a daughter of Curlin out of the A.P. Indy mare Dreaming of Julia (fourth as the 3/2 favorite in the 2013 Kentucky Oaks) who was purchased for $1.05 million as a yearling and who’s now earned $1,125,150.
