Abel Tasman Wins Kentucky Oaks

Abel Tasman, in 14th and last place after   a half mile, staged a huge rally and won the $1 million Kentucky  Oaks (Grade 1) on Friday. 

Mike Smith rode Abel Tasman, who is trained by Bob Baffert.

Their win in the 1 1/8 mile stakes for 3-year-old fillies came in the rain on a sloppy and sealed track.

Daddy's Lil Darling finished second, also rallying from back in the pack.  Julien Leparoux rode her for trainer Ken McPeek.

The odds were 9-1 on  Abel Tasman and 12-1 on Daddy's Lil Darling.

The $2 exacta paid $203.00.
