2023 Monmouth Oaks Recap Occult wins by 10 14 lengths

Saturday saw Monmouth Park host the 99th running of the Monmouth Oaks and the horse on everybody’s lips was OCCULT, and for good reason, as she simply blew this field away by more than 10 lengths. Here is the 2023 Monmouth Oaks Recap!

This was a step down the class ladder for the daughter of Into Mischief after her solid showing in the 2023 Grade 1 Acorn Stakes at Belmont Park at the beginning of June.

Her morning line odds of 3/1 soon disappeared and she returned the 9/5 chalk.

She had work to do from her wide gate post but Lynch was in no hurry and as they entered the clubhouse turn he gave his filly time to settle and she went into the backstretch outside of main rival Foggy Night with clear daylight ahead.

The race heated up going out of the backstretch and Lynch made a bold move five wide on the top turn.

No sooner had they hit the stretch, and Occult swooped to lead, and soon widened by three lengths, and it was race over in a matter of strides as the filly just continued to widen and had ten and a quarter lengths in hand of Foggy Night at the wire, with Riding Pretty closing late for the third spot, and edging out Atthecrossroads who ran fourth.

Surely a step back up the class ladder is now on the agenda for the Chad Brown barn inmate.
