Without Kathmanblu in the field, the $500,000 Fair Grounds Oaks (gr. II) went from a race with a heavy favorite to one with a wide-open feel.
On Feb. 19, Kathmanblu will take a major step toward the Kentucky Oaks (gr. I) when topping a field seven 3-year-old fillies in the $150,000 Rachel Alexandra Stakes (gr. III) at Fair Grounds.
