Smooth Rail Trip for Viking Belle Vb in Bourbonette Oaks

Smokey Stover made a big investment with Viking Belle Vb, picking her up about a week after she won an allowance, for $250.000 in private sales.

Lady Sammyantha May Bounce Back Well in Bourbonette Oaks

With just a little more than a month to go now until the KYO, trainers are looking to pick up any amount of points that they can to get into the race.
