Trainer John Servis says Cathryn Sophia peaking
Trainer John Servis says he is thrilled with how his Oaks day horse is doing before the big race.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- WDRB in the Morning met up with Trainer John Servis on the Backside at Churchill Downs this morning.
Servis is the trainer of the Oaks co-second choice Cathryn Sophia.
Servis says Cathryn Sophia is coming off of her only defeat and he is "tickled to death" with how she's doing.
"The distance is a little concern. It's the first time she's been this far, but we've pointed for this race since the first of the year and tried to get her to peak today and she's doing it. We're happy," Servis said.
Servis says Cathryn Sophia has already been out for the day and she is in her stall eating grain. He says his big task is to relax get ready for the race.
Cathryn Sophia is set to start in post position 12.
