Desk Farms' Helen Belen, who romped by nearly 15 lengths in the Valdale Stakes last out, is one of a trio of 3-year-old fillies highweighted at 121 pounds for the $125,000 Bourbonette Oaks (gr. III) March 27 at Turfway Park.
Helen Belen, owned by Mike Schnell's Desk Farms, won her first stakes in the Feb. 20 Valdale Stakes for 3-year-old fillies at Turfway Park, and in the process gave her owner and trainer their first stakes victories.
