The latest Horse Racing Odds have Grace Hall listed at 9 to 4 odds, On Fire Baby at 4 to 1 odds, and Broadway’s Alibi at 9 to 2 odds. Post-time for the 138th Kentucky Oaks (1 1/8 miles) is scheduled for 5:00pm ET; the race will be broadcast live on the NBC Sports Network.

Grace Hall (9/4 – Post #2): Empire Maker sired filly has four wins in six starts, including the Grade 1 Spinaway Stakes (seven furlongs) and Grade 2 Gulfstream Oaks (1 1/8 miles). An all dirt racer, Grace Hall placed second at the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies last November. Pedigree and performance has demonstrated both speed and stamina.

On Fire Baby (4/1 – Post #1): Placed fifth in the Alcibiades Stakes (G1) after breaking its maiden, but has since won three of four races entered. On Fire Baby last competed in the Grade 3 Honeybee Stakes, besting fellow Oaks entrants Amie’s Dini and Colonial Empress.

Broadway’s Alibi (9/2 – Post #6): Broadway’s Alibi comes into the Oaks riding a four race win streak, but has yet to separate herself against Grade 1 competition. Since breaking her maiden has won an Allowance race, the Grade 2 Forward Gal Stakes, and the Grade 3 Comely Stakes (one mile). Has raced only one race over seven furlongs.
