Lovely Afternoon & Catboat dead-heat in Arlington Oaks – G3


Arlington Park – Arlington Breeders’ Cup Oaks (Grade 3) 1 1/8 miles

LOVELY AFTERNOON, winner of the Blue Mountain Juvenile S. last November, broke out of post position 2 to race three wide.  Catboat went to lead in the stretch only to be caught in the final strides by Lovely Afternoon, matching stride for stride for a photo finish where the two horses appear as one.  This is the first stakes victory for Lovely Afternoon. 

Congratulations to owner Richard Otto Stables Inc. and trainer Anthony Mitchell!
