2023 Jockey Club Oaks Invitational Stakes Recap

British raider Eternal Hope gains her first graded stakes win in the 2023 Jockey Club Oaks Invitational Stakes. Trainer Charlie Appleby is no stranger to success when sending his horses to the US, and again plundered another valuable purse with the filly Eternal Hope who was gaining her first graded stakes win.

She had come up against tougher foes in two of her recent races, finishing well beaten in the 2023 Grade 1 Oaks Stakes at Epsom, before a solid effort on her next assignment when taking the third spot in the 2023 Grade 2 Prix Alec Head.

“She has to improve,” Spencer replied when asked if Eternal Hope had the makings of a Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf (G1T) starter, “but I think she will. She’s lightly raced with five starts before today.”

Spencer is well known for his skill on late closers and he anchored his filly at the back of the chasing pack as Stephanie’s Charm went ten lengths clear of the field, Spencer made his move pitching into the five lane as they entered the stretch where it became a five-way battle to the wire.

Neecie Marie pitched to the inside rail and widened by a length but Spencer was now in full flight on the chalk and nailed her right under the wire with Speirling Beag closing late for the show, with Highland Grace in the fourth spot.
