Storm Flag Flying Lukewarm Leader in Oaks Future Bet

Undefeated Storm Flag Flying is a lukewarm favorite at 5-1 in the first-ever Kentucky Oaks Future Wager as the betting closed on Friday.

The Ogden Phipps-owned champion daughter of Storm Cat is scheduled to make her 2003 debut in the Comely, which will serve as her lone prep for the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) on May 2. She has not competed since winning the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) on Oct. 26, which earned her the Eclipse in 2002 as top 2-year-old filly.

The field – all eligible fillies other than the 22 betting individual betting interests – is second choice at 7-1. Bird Town is at 8-1. Danuta, the Godolphin-owned entry who is not expected to run in the Oaks, and Holiday Lady, are both at 10-1. Undefeated Lady Tak, at 11-1, is also among those getting the most early support. Lady Tak is favored in Saturday's Ashland (gr. I) at Keeneland.

Also garnering attention are My Boston Gal (13-1), Santa Catarina (14-1) and Elloluv (17-1).

A total of $25,812 had been wagered during the first two days of the Kentucky Oaks future pool as of 9:15 EST.
