It was good to see Billy Joel, the reigning BC Turf champion, back on the track for the first time since the Pegasus World Cup Turf in late January.

A steady rain that began in the early afternoon and lasted throughout the night took its toll on the track, leaving the turf course as yielding. This would lead to one scratch, but it would be the horse that we predicted would be the one to beat, in High Planker.
Summertime may be right around the corner, but the Summertime Oaks comes this Sunday as a field of eight fillies, several of which ran in the KYO at the start of the month, will hit the starting gate for this Grade 2.
