The $1,000,000 Kentucky Oaks (G1) is the premier race in the country for 3-year-old fillies, and is the female counterpart to the Kentucky Derby. A field of 13 went to post in this 1 1/8 mile main track feature at Churchill Downs on Friday before 110,122, the third highest Oaks attendance in history.
Plum Pretty, with Martin Garcia aboard, returned $14.60 as fourth choice in a field of 13 3-year-old fillies. Her triumph in the 1 1/8-mile Oaks was preceded by third-place finish in the Las Virgenes in early February and her 25-length romp in the Sunland Park Oaks in late March. Plum Pretty, a Pennsylvania-bred daughter of Medaglia d’Oro, is owned by the Peachtree stable in Camden SC.
In 1981 Fort moved his stable to Atlanta, Georgia and adopted the name Peachtree, which is so well known today. With the help of mentors such as hall of fame trainer Horatio Luro and veterinarian Dr. Robert Copelan, Fort’s stable began to grow.
