Untapable out to get her revenge on Dancer
Preview: USA, Friday 11.10pm BST
Oaklawn Park (Arkansas): Apple Blossom Hcap (Grade 1) 1m1/2f, dirt, 4yo+ f/m
CHAMPION filly Untapable (Steve Asmussen/John Velazquez), who suffered a shock defeat on her seasonal debut at Oaklawn, gets her chance for revenge back at the same venue on Friday in the Apple Blossom.
The four-year-old must concede at least 4lb to six rivals in the $600,000 contest - and they include Gold Medal Dancer (Donnie von Hemel/Luis Quinonez), who held on to beat her by a half-length in a Grade 2 contest on March 14.
The winner had a fitness edge after a previous outing that day whereas Untapable had not been seen since winning the Breeders' Cup Distaff, one of six graded successes last term for the daughter of Tapit.
Also on Friday
Keeneland: Maker's 46 Mile (Grade 1) 1m, turf, 4yo+ (10.13pm BST, live on ATR)
Wise Dan has won the last two runnings of this $300,000 event but there's nothing like him - nor indeed any previous Grade 1 winners whatsoever - in this field. Likely favourite is Kilroe Mile runner-up Summer Front (Christophe Clement/Victor Espinoza).
