Untapable Kentucky Oaks favorite

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Untapable should feel right at home when she takes to the track for the $1 million Kentucky Oaks.

After all, she's undefeated in two previous races at Churchill Downs, and she's the early 4-5 favorite for Friday's 140th running of the nation's richest race for 3-year-old fillies.

Untapable has won both her starts this year by a combined 17¼ lengths. She'll take on 12 rivals in the 1 1/8-mile race.

The filly will be ridden by Rosie Napravnik, who is seeking her second Oaks win. She became the first female jockey to win the Kentucky Derby eve race in 2012 aboard Believe You Can.
