Race 6: 5-2-1-6

The 2 and the 5 will both win you bets. I’d suggest you exacta box all four of these horses.

Race 7: 3-12-6-9

Bet the 6 and the 9 across the board. You should be able to get decent prices for them. Again, use an exacta box on these four.

Race 8: 4-1-5-6-12

Bet the 4 and the 6 to win… Use an exacta box on all five.

Race 9: 3-7-4-12

Bet the 3 to win the race here,

Race 10: 2-5-1-7-10

Bet both the 2 and the 5 to win. Bet all in an exacta box.

Race 11: 4-12-13

Bet the 12 to win.

Abel Tasman won the Kentucky Oaks.

By the backstretch I was in a perfect position and I was very happy with the way he was doing things,” Velazquez said. “After that, really, I was just waiting for the stretch run to see how he would respond for me and he responded right away.”
