Long shot Princess of Sylmar rallied with a huge stretch run to win the $1 million Kentucky Oaks Friday at Churchill Downs.
One of four fillies trained by Pletcher in the Grade I race, the 38-1 shot upstaged 3-2 favorite Dreaming of Julia.
With Hall of Famer Mike Smith aboard, Princess of Sylmar ran 1⅛ miles in 1:49.17 and paid $79.60, $29.40, and $14.00. Beholder returned $9 and $5.60, and Unlimited Budget paid $3.80 to show.
