Pair of WPT Fillies Featured in Kentucky Oaks Future Wager
Fitz Just Right and Justwhistledixie Among Choices for Oaks Future
Following their recent scores in stakes races, West Point Thoroughbreds has two fillies listed among the 23 individual choices in the Kentucky Oaks Future Wager. Both Fitz Just Right and Justwhistledixie are listed as options for the wagering event which is scheduled to begin on Thursday.
'Dixie, coming off her dominating performance in the G2 Davona Dale, is listed at 12-1 on the Oaks Future Morning Line. Champion two-year-old filly Stardom Bound is the M/L favorite at 5-1. Justwhistledixie is scheduled to make her next start in the $200,000 G2 Bonnie Miss at Gulfstream Park on March 27th.
Fitz Just Right, meanwhile, is listed at 20-1 in the Oaks Futures wager. She comes off an eye-popping score in the Ocala Breeders' Sale Championship, and will make her next start in either the $400,000 G1 Ashland at Keeneland or the $250,000 G2 Fantasy Stakes at Oaklawn Park. Both races are scheduled for the first weekend in April, with the Ashland on Saturday the 4th, and the Fantasy on Sunday the 5th.
WPT President Terry Finley was not surprised by the news of two of the stable's horses listed among the leading contenders for the Oaks. "We've got some real talented horses in training and these two are certainly among the best three-year-old fillies in the country right now. We're very excited about both of them going forward."
