The road to Kentucky Oaks 2024 continues at Fair Grounds on Saturday, January 20, and I have included Silverbulletday Stakes 2024 picks below. The non-graded event for 3-year-old fillies has a $150,000 purse and the eight entrants will be journeying a mile and seventy yards on the main track. The Silverbulletday is the 10th race on Jan. 20 and the top five finishers will earn Kentucky Oaks points (20-10-6-4-2). 

Silverbulletday Stakes 2024 Picks & Final Time Ratings

Perfect Shot finished an even 4th in her extended sprint bow, and was second best in a one-turn mile second time out. She stretched out around two turns on Nov. 25, and she chased the pace from an outer post and kicked away to graduate by 3 1/4 lengths. Shiloh’s Mistress, the runner-up from her last race, returned to break her maiden at Turfway Park on Jan. 10. This filly improved her speed ratings in all three starts under the Twin Spires, and Steve Asmussen’s $285k daughter of Gun Runner should be forwardly placed from the inside post under Joel Rosario. 

Miss Code West won all four starts at Remington Park. The Oklahoma-bred daughter of Code West captured a pair of state bred stakes races, and exits a romping victory in the mud in the Trapeze on Dec. 15. She should be all over the pace in her toughest career test.

West Omaha rallied for the show in her extended sprint bow, and she was placed 2nd through disqualification that day. She attended the pace and kicked away to graduate by 4 lengths at seven panels second time out, and the 2-3 finishers were next-out winners. She stretched out after a short layoff in the Untapable Stakes on Dec. 23, and she stalked outside and was clearly second best as my top choice. She has every right to move forward in her second route start, and Luis Saez is her fourth rider in as many races. Brad Cox’s daughter of West Coast has worked twice at Fair Grounds since her last outing and should make her presence felt from the outset.  

Sistina Chapel was best of the rest in an okay show finish in the Untapable Stakes. She was part of the trifecta in all five career starts and will try to get involved from off the pace. 

The 8-horse Silverbulletday field also includes Accommodate Eva, Play Good Pay Good, Ma Rae’s Girl, and Noriskit Nobiscuit.
