    导出博客文章The nine 3-year-old fillies in the $300,000 Delaware Oaks on Saturday arent
    household names, but that doesnt mean there isnt potential in the field. As the
    second half of the season begins, a number of entrants in the 1-1/16-mile Oaks
    are just now being moved up in class.The top three choices in the Grade 3 Oaks
    -- Kinsley Kisses, Dark Nile, and Browse -- have each started only four times.
    Browse is the only one of the trio to have raced at 2, and she won her debut at
    Aqueduct in December.The Delaware Oaks is one of four stakes at Delaware Park on
    Saturday. The undercard includes the Grade 3, $200,000 Robert Dick Memorial, a
    1-3/8-mile turf race for fillies and mares, and a pair of $50,000 stakes. The
    Dashing Beauty is a filly-and-mare sprint, and the Cape Henlopen is a 1-1/2-mile
    turf race for 3-year-olds and up.The card will be streamed live on The
    Delaware Park meet hits its high point next weekend, when the Grade 1, $750,000
    Delaware Handicap will be run.The Delaware Oaks favorite is Kinsley Kisses, who
    races for trainer Todd Pletcher. She has good early speed and has shown heart in
    her last two races while facing top-shelf competition.After posting
    front-running wins at Gulfstream Park and Tampa Bay Downs last winter, Kinsley
    Kisses was thrown into the deep end of the pool in the Grade 3 Beaumont at
    Keeneland. She settled off the front-runner but didnt pick up the pace
    immediately when asked. She persevered in the stretch to finish third behind
    Lightstream, who was third in the Mother Goose last weekend, and Grade 1 winner
    Nickname.Kinsley Kisses most recently finished third in the Grade 2 Black-Eyed
    Susan at Pimlico. She raced on the pace outside eventual winner Go Maggie Go,
    couldnt stay with that rival in the stretch, and then was nipped for second by a
    head.Kinsley Kisses has worked three times at Saratoga since that race,
    including a half-mile in 48.60 seconds on July 1.Shes coming into this training
    well and had a sharp breeze last week, Pletcher said.Dark Nile, trained by
    Arnaud Delacour, and Browse, conditioned by Shug McGaughey, have the advantage
    of having raced over the track. They finished first and second, separated by
    three-quarters of a length, in the Our Mims, the local prep for the Oaks.Browse
    set the pace that day, while Dark Nile sat a few lengths back. Dark Nile rallied
    to gain the lead in upper stretch, and Browse battled back and made a race of it
    until deep stretch before being outfinished.Dark Nile has now scored three
    straight two-turn wins. The Our Mims was Browses first try around two turns, and
    it would not be a surprise to see her improve Saturday.Key ContendersKinsley
    Kisses, by CongratsLast 3 Beyers: 81-81-74Faces less-proven competition than in
    her last two races. The seasoning she has gained may show.Browse, by Medaglia
    dOroLast 3 Beyers: 80-77-78After Dark Nile got by her in upper stretch of the
    Our Mims, McGaughey adds blinkers to her equipment for the Oaks.Dark Nile, by
    Pioneerof the NileLast 3 Beyers: 81-77-66After easier wins at Tampa Bay Downs
    and Penn National, she took her game a step higher by winning the Our Mims.This
    is the race we have been shooting for, and it is the next logical spot, Delacour
    said.Eighth Wonder, by Pioneerof the NileLast 3 Beyers: 77-82-76Her lone
    two-turn start is the only time anyone has crossed the finish line in front of
    her, and she was coming off a six-month layoff and may have been a little short.
    Nobody has gotten within five lengths of her in her other four races.Notoriously
    high-strung, keep an eye on her in the paddock to see how she behaves. This will
    be her first start away from her home base of Parx. Trained by Dee Curry, shes
    fast and surely will take the lead if others hesitate.Miss Inclusive, by
    IncludeLast 3 Beyers: 67-83-65She defeated Eighth Wonder in the Parx Oaks but
    was disqualified for a clenbuterol overage. She flattened out to finish fourth
    in the Our Mims but may have more to give here for trainer John Servis.
    Cheap Rays Jerseys . John Lucas,
    signed as a mentor for rookie Trey Burke, showed he can score if required,
    scoring 12 points of his 16 points in the second quarter as Utah built an
    18-point lead.

    Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night. .
    It might not have mattered. While the Dodgers are preparing for the playoffs,
    the Padres showed their future has promise behind two rookies.

    which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing.
    Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at
    the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive
