Rags to Riches Solid in Oaks Future Wager

Derrick Smith and Michael Tabor’s Rags to Riches, the winner of the Las Virgenes (gr. I) and Santa Anita Oaks (gr. II), remained a strong favorite at the midpoint of betting in Churchill Downs’ 2007 Kentucky Oaks Future Wager.

The Todd Pletcher-trained daughter of A.P. Indy was the 2-1 choice of bettors at racetracks and satellite wagering outlets in North America and Canada when betting concluded on April 13, the second day of the four-day wagering pool. Rags to Riches entered KOFW Pool 3 as the 2-1 favorite.

The second choice at the midpoint of the year’s final pool of Oaks Futures betting, Starlight Stable and Paul Lucarelli’s Octave, also hails from the Pletcher barn. The runner-up in the Ashland (gr. I) and the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies (gr. I) stood at odds of 5-1 at the end of Friday’s wagering. Anita Ebert’s homebred High Heels – the winner of Oaklawn’s Fantasy (gr. II) trained by Louisville native Gary Hartlage – was the third choice at 8-1. The mutuel field, which includes all 3-year-old fillies other than the 23 individual horses in KOFW Pool 3, was at 9-1 following Friday’s betting.

A total of $12,232 had been wagered on the first two days of betting in the April 12-15 pool. The pool is scheduled to close at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The 133rd running of the $500,000 added Kentucky Oaks (GI) is May 4 at Churchill Downs.
