2015 Delaware Oaks Race Favorite Entries
Lovely Maria 1-1 - Larry Jones trained filly has four wins and three second place finishes in eight career starts. She enters off a terrific win in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks which followed a victory in the Grade 1 Ashland Stakes at Keeneland April 4, a good second in her graded stakes debut - the Grade 3 Rachel Alexandra Stakes at Fair Grounds February 21 and an Allowance Optional Claiming score in wire-to-wire fashion January 25. Lovely Maria has been virtually untouchable in 2015, is the most accomplished filly in the field and hopes to keep the roll going from post 5 with Kerwin Clark guiding the even-money favorite and 122 pound highweight.
White Clover 5/1 - another Larry Jones trained filly has three wins, two seconds and a third place finish in eight career starts. She enters off consecutive wins on this track - the minor Our Mims Stakes last time out June 3 and an Allowance May 16. Before that was a second in an Allowance and a seventh in his only graded stakes action to date - the Grade 3 Rachel Alexandra Stakes at Fair Grounds in February. She has been very good the last three months and hopes to keep the roll going from gate 6 with Michael Rivto in the reins.
Delaware Oaks 2015 | Remaining Contenders
Peace and War 6/1 - Graham Motion trained filly won the Grade 1 Darley Alcibiades Stakes in October - her best career result. She didn't look great in her next two starts - a seventh in the Grade 1 Ashland Stakes in April was followed by an eighth in the Grade 3 Pat Day Mile in May. Last time out was a better result - a second behind White Clover in the minor Our Mims Stakes on this track June 3. Peace and War has had some good results in her career and hopes for another Saturday from the outside post 8 with hall-of-fame jockey John Velazquez guiding the morning line third choice.
Danzatrice 8/1 - has three wins and a second place finish in five career starts for trainer Cathal Lynch. She enters off a fourth in the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes June 6 after a nice win in her stakes debut - the minor Parx Oaks May 2 and an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Laurel Park in March. She has looked pretty good in her career so far but hopes for a graded stakes breakthrough Saturday from gate 4 with Trevor McCarthy in the reins.

Bar of Gold 10/1 - John Kimmel trained filly won her first three career starts and finished a somewhat disappointing sixth in the other - that result coming June 6 in the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes at Belmont Park. The wins included two Allowance Optional Claiming races at Aqueduct this past spring and a maiden score at first asking last August. Bar of Gold hopes to get back on the winning track Saturday from post 3 with Alex Cintron in the irons.
Hip Hop N Jazz 10/1 - Tom Proctor trained filly will try to remain perfect in her career - she has two starts so far and two wins. Last time out was an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Monmouth Park May 30 after a maiden score at first asking - at Pimlico in April. Brian Pedroza has been tabbed to keep the win streak going from the rail Saturday.
Calamity Kate 12/1 - finished second in the Grade 2 Demoiselle Stakes at Aqueduct to end her 2014 campaign in November after a ninth in the Grade 1 Darley Alcibiades in October. She has three starts in 2015 - an eighth in the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes followed an Allowance Optional Claiming score in May. Calamity Kate has two wins and a second place finish in seven career starts and hopes for his first stakes score when she leaves from post 7 with Edgar Prado in the irons.
Milaya 15/1 - has seven career starts for trainer Michael Dilger with a win and a pair of second place finishes. He finally broke maiden last time out - on this track June 23 after a fifth in his only stakes action - the minor Our Mims Stakes here June 3 and a pair of runner-up finishes in MSW races this past spring. Milaya has been OK the last five months and hopes for her first stakes score Saturday from gate 2 with Kendrick Carmouche in the saddle.
