Lovely Maria Wins Kentucky Oaks

Lovely Maria took charge in the stretch to pass Angela Renee and went on to win the 141st Kentucky Oaks on Friday at Churchill Downs.

Following up last month's Grade 1 Ashland victory at Keeneland, Lovely Maria broke from the No. 7 post position and was in the hunt throughout the $1 million showcase for 3-year-old fillies. She was even with Angela Renee in the stretch before making a last kick for her third victory in four starts, giving trainer Larry Jones and owner Brereton Jones their third Oaks victories.

Ridden by 56-year-old veteran Kerwin Clark, Lovely Maria ran 1 1/8 miles in 1:50.45 and paid $14.60, $7.80 and $5.40.

Shook Up returned $20.20 and $11.40. I'm a Chatterbox paid $5 to show.
