Daddys Home

Rarely go out West for the Feature Race of the day but the American Oaks is the last Grade 1 of 2017.

We love Rymska (5-2) and her big late foot as a race horse, and Chad Brown is certainly not compromised when he ships to the left coast.

But we're going to side with Daddys Lil Darling (3-1) who has slightly better figures, is more tactical, drawn nicely toward the inside and picks up the services of Money Mike.

Her pedigree may be a tad shy of 10 furlongs but her 1-3/16 miles at KD was her most impressive score and she has shipped out early to get a final fast pre-race trial in SoCal.

Taking Daddys Lil Girl to win at 5-2 or greater, an exacta box with Rymska, and adding Madam Dancealot (6-1) and the longer Chad, New Money Honey (7-2), to the super-exotics mix.
