Chilukki Stakes Odds & Racing Picks

Nine talented fillies and mares will head down to post for this year’s Chilukki Stakes. With a fascinating race in store, one of the horses likely to play a leading part in the betting is Hidden Connection. 


A former winner at this level when winning the 2021 Pocahontas Stakes, she has been highly tried this year but hasn’t won any of her seven starts. Back in grade, her connections will be hopeful of a big showing. 

Chilukki Stakes

Grade 3, 1 mile, dirt, open to fillies & mares aged three and over. Total prize pool: $300,000

Hidden Connection is bound to prove popular in the market.

A former Grade 3 winner, she has raced in some competitive races and competed against some top horses. 

Although yet to win a race this year, she does head into this race having finished second in the 2023 Groupie Doll Stakes and 2023 Locust Grove Stakes. 

With some of the best form in the field, this could be the race where it all finally comes together.

Hoping to inflict another defeat on Hidden Connection will be Falconet

Having already conquered Hidden Connection in the Groupie Doll Stakes, she was brought back down to earth in the Locust Grove Stakes, finishing well down the field.

With three wins in her last six starts, she could be worth chancing at a price. 

She Can’t Sing produced the best performance of her career when winning this race last year. 

Since that memorable day, things haven’t gone to plan, and she is now without a win in her last five starts. Having suffered successive defeats, something special will need to happen if she is to become the first multiple winner of this race.

Another horse bound to be popular in the betting is Nostalgic

A winner of the 2022 Gazelle Stakes, she will be making just her fourth start of 2023.

She heads into this race having finished third in the 2023 Beldame Stakes and her followers will hope she arrives fresh and ready to compete for this contest. 

Arguably the most interesting horse in the lineup is Oeuvre

A winner of her last four starts, she has won thirteen of her sixteen career starts. Whilst all those wins have come beneath Graded Stakes level, she is clearly a gutsy competitor who knows where the finishing line is. 

Another horse to put on the watchlist is Hot and Sultry. She heads into the race winless in her last three but finished third in the 2023 Apple Blossom Stakes and fourth in the 2023 Derby City Distaff Stakes.

With both of those races coming at the very highest level, she should be more than capable of a bold showing back in this grade.

Completing this year’s Chilukki lineup is Raindrops on Roses, Braganza and Be Like Water

Odds & Racing Prediction

Hot and Sultry might find this race to her liking. Defeats in Grade 1 company in both of her last two starts have been respectable and back in this class, she might just have too much class for her rivals.
