The Alys Look will try to build off her third place finish in the Kentucky Oaks when she leaves the starting gate in the 2023 Summertime Oaks on Saturday at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif. Trained by Chris Davis, The Alys Look has been installed as the 5-2 morning-line favorite in the 2023 Summertime Oaks odds, while Anywho and Doinitthehardway are the co-second choices in the seven-horse 2023 Summertime Oaks field. Post time is 7:44 p.m. ET.
With an accomplished field set to enter the starting gate on Saturday, you'll want to see what astute racing reporter and analyst Michelle Yu has to say before making any 2023 Summertime Oaks picks. Join SportsLine here to see who she's picking!
Few people in racing are as well-connected as Yu. An on-air host and reporter who has provided racing analysis for TVG, HRTV and the Breeders' Cup, Yu has spent a lifetime in racing. Prior to her television career, she worked for trainers Steve Asmussen and Ron Moquett. She also is married to Santa Anita-based trainer Ryan Hanson.
Yu also has tremendous handicapping chops. In a wide-open Kentucky Derby in 2021, she gave out Medina Spirit, who crossed the finish line first, as the winner at 12-1. In Pool 5 of the Kentucky Derby Future Wager last year, she suggested a play on All Other 3-Year-Olds, which cashed at a whopping 18-1 when Rich Strike won the Derby.
Since the end of February, she has crushed the Saudi Cup, riding a 15-1 winner, nailed Derma Sotogake to win the UAE Derby and hit the exacta in the Santa Anita Derby, Preakness Stakes and Hollywood Gold Cup. Anyone who has followed her is WAY UP!
For Saturday, Yu has handicapped the 2023 Summertime Oaks horses, made her picks and constructed her bets. Join SportsLine here to see them!
One surprise: Yu's top pick is not The Alys Look, even though she is the 5-2 favorite. "This filly likes to be forwardly placed and draws the rail so that suits, but California races go a lot faster than they do elsewhere," Yu told SportsLine. Yu prefers another horse over The Alys Look.
Instead, Yu's top pick is a horse who is coming off a "brutal trip" in her last race. Yu also is high on a longshot who has "lots of things going for her." She is including these horses in her 2023 Summertime Oaks bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see her picks before locking in any of your own.
So who wins the 2023 Summertime Oaks? And which longshot is a must-back? ... Join SportsLine right now to get Michelle Yu's 2023 Summertime Oaks picks, all from the insider who nailed the Hollywood Gold Cup exacta on Memorial Day!
