Eight Belles Results: So Many Ways Charges Home In Deep Stretch

A fast pace and a couple of strong closers lead to big payouts in the Grade 3 Eight Belles on the Kentucky Oaks under card.

Matthew Stockman

So Many Ways used a big, late run down the middle to pass Fusaichiswonderful on the Churchill Downs main track to win the Grade 3 Eight Belles on the Kentucky Oaks under card. Chortle and Blueeyesintherein set the pace through quick opening fractions of 22.17 and 45.18, setting things up perfectly for the closers in the final quarter mile. A wall of fillies stretched across the track inside the final furlong with So Many Ways making the last, best run of the field.

So Many Ways is a three-year-old filly by Sightseeing out of a Dehere mare (Happy Scene), trained by Thomas Amoss and ridden by Garrett Gomez.
