Recap

Birdatthewire captures Gulfstream Park Oaks

Forum Racing's Birdatthewire (Summer Bird) captured Saturday's $250,000 Gulfstream Park Oaks (G2) by 1 1/4 lengths as the 8-5 favorite for trainer Dale Romans.

Ridden to victory by jockey Irad Ortiz Jr., the bay miss was forced to steady between the seven-eighths and three-quarter poles, then rallied wide around the final turn to take over from Eskenformoney (Eskendereya).

From there Birdatthewire drew off to finish 1 1/16 miles in 1:47 2/5, and along the way earned 100 points toward a starting berth in the Kentucky Oaks (G1) on May 1 at Churchill Downs.

Eskenformoney was awarded 40 points thanks to her runner-up finish, while Danessa Deluxe (Summer Bird) took home 20 points. Devine Aida (Unbridled's Song), who finished well back in fourth, earned 10 points.
