Racing season might be over in Hot Springs, but Oaklawn-raced horses continue to make a name for themselves at tracks across the country.
Interstatedaydream, a 2022 Oaklawn allowance winner, is the 7-2 program favorite for the $250,000 Lady Jacqueline Stakes for fillies and mares 3 years old and up Saturday at Thistledown.
Interstatedaydream began her 3-year-old season with an 8 1/4-length allowance victory at 1 1/16 miles in 2022 at Oaklawn for owner Staton Flurry of Hot Springs.
She returned to the Spa City in 2023 as a multiple graded stakes winner and finished third in her 4-year-old debut in the Grade 2 $350,000 Azeri Stakes March 11.
Interstatedaydream recently won the $100,000 Allaire DuPont Distaff Stakes for fillies and mares 3 years old and up May 19 at Pimlico.
She will break from post 8 under Florent Geroux in the 11th of 12 races at Thistledown Saturday. The Lady Jacqueline has a probable post time of 4:35 p.m.
Other Oaklawn-raced horses in the Lady Jacqueline include Misty Veil and Le Da Vida. Misty Veil and Le Da Vida finished second and third respectively in the Allaire DuPont.
Also entered at Thistledown Saturday in the $75,000 Cleveland Gold Cup Stakes for 3-year-old Ohio-breds is Hey Eugene. Hey Eugene is an April 21 Oaklawn maiden special weight graduate.
