Crazy Beautiful earned her way into the April 30 Kentucky Oaks (G1) at Churchill Downs; by following in the hoofprints of McPeek-trained Swiss Skydiver. Who captured last year’s Gulfstream Oaks winner; who also went on to beat the boys in the Preakness Stakes (G1) at Pimlico.
Crazy Beautiful; a sleet gray/roan filly, is trained by Kenny McPeek, who won last year’s race with eventual classic winner and champion Swiss Skydiver.

Out of the grade 3-placed Indian Charlie mare Indian Burn; Crazy Beautiful was a little stubborn to load and was last early in a tight-bunched field of seven going 1 1/16 miles at Gulfstream Park.
Con Lima; who had made her last four starts on turf, was hustled from the rail to get the early lead and was able to set sensible fractions of :24.16; for the opening quarter-mile and :48.69 for the half-mile while being stalked by Bow Bow Girl; Len Lo Lady, and Pens Street. On the turn, the Bill Mott-trained Millefeuille drove to the leader and was able to get the advantage at the head of the lane, but Jose Ortiz and Crazy Beautiful came with a four-wide move into the stretch. She drove down the center of the track and pulled away in the final sixteenth. Millefeuille finished 1 3/4 lengths ahead of Competitive Speed. The time over a fast track was 1:44.41. The win was a third on the day for Ortiz.
Crazy Beautiful Had a Productive 2020 Campaign
