Best In Form Bests The Rest


Numero Ena takes the lead!

Pumpkin Racing had his fillie in the best shape of its life and Numero Ena was numero uno. With a bullet workout at CD she bested the rest and could not be caught winning the 9th running of the HRP KY Oaks-G1 $1,000.000. Going off at 10-1 Numero Ena battled with Rosetta for the lead early and once they hit the final turn she never looked back going away by 4 lengths! Will she see a TC race next?
