2015 Charles Town Oaks Race Favorite Entries
Sarah Sis - three times stakes winner this year won the Grade 3 Honeybee Stakes at Oaklawn Park March 7, but stumbled to a fifth in the Grade 3 Fantasy Stakes in April- both at Oaklawn Park. She most recently finished fourth after she led early and faded against older fillies and mares in the Grade 1 Ballerina Stakes at Saratoga August 29. Before that was a nice two race win streak - the Grade 3 Iowa Oaks June 27 and the minor Panthers Stakes at Prairie Meadows in May. She also had a DNF in the Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks four weeks prior to that. Sarah Sis has five wins and three second place finishes in 11 career starts and looks to get back in the win column Saturday. Julio Felix gets the call aboard the 9-5 morning line favorite from the rail.
Fusaichi Red - George Weaver trained filly has hit the board in all seven career starts - two wins, two seconds and three third place finishes. She raced in stakes company for the first time September 6 and finished a respectable third behind Cavorting and Bar of Gold in the Grade 2 Prioress Stakes. That result followed a win in her stakes debut - the minor Miss Woodford Stakes by 3 3/4 lengths at Monmouth Park July 19 and a maiden score by an incredible 8 1/4 lengths in a race she posted an 86 Beyer Speed Figure July 7. Fusaichi Red has improved every time out and hopes to keep that trend going. Joe Bravo has been tabbed to ride in Fusaichi Red's first try around two turns from post 4.

Temper Mint Patty - has 10 career starts for new trainer Todd Pletcher with three wins, a second and three third place finishes. Last time out was a third as favorite in the minor Fleet Indian Stakes August 28 after a win by an incredible 9 1/4 lengths in the minor New York Stakes at Finger Lakes in July and a third in the minor Bouwerie Stakes in May. She has yet to place in three graded stakes tries but enters this week in decent form. Luis Saez gets the call from gate 6.
Hot City Girl - made her graded stakes debut July 27 and finished fifth in the Grade 1 Mother Goose Stakes July 25 for trainer Linda Rice. Before that was seven career starts with two wins and two second place finishes. She had fourth place finishes in minor stakes action in the spring - the Bouwerie Stakes May 25 and the Caesar's Wish Stakes in March. Those results followed a second in the minor Wide Country Stakes in February and an Allowance Optional Claiming score at Aqueduct in January. Hot City Girl has been OK so far in her career and will have Jose Ortiz in the reins from post 3.
Toutsie Rules - won her first two career starts - one of which came over the terrific Lovely Maria for trainer Michael Stidham but hasn't looked good since. Last time out was a fifth in an Allowance Optional Claiming at Arlington August 20 and an eighth in the minor Dixie Belle Stakes at Oaklawn Park in January. Not a whole lot is expected when she leaves from post 5 with JD Acosta in the irons.
