Ashbrook Farm and Upland Flats Racing’s CARDS READY (f, 3, Oscar–Wild Silk, by street feeling) starting right where she left off Saturday, edging past Gulfstream’s GIII Forward Gal S. to stay unbeaten and earn eight GI Kentucky Oaks qualifying points. At almost 37-1 odds when she hit the first Churchill slope on October 30, Dark Bay handled the next step confidently, passing Fern Creek S. on November 26. during the day before a next grant winner returns under the Twin Towers. Off as narrow second pick 2-1 after multiple local bet winners Atomic (girvin) – last seen finishing seventh in the GI Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies – Red Carpet Ready took the lead but was restrained by Luis Saez to stick to third. She took her three-depth challenge and quickly passed the score: 45.98 half, but had her Chad Brown-trained debut overalls Undervalued assets (Sightstown) sighed down her neck as they headed straight home. Red Carpet Ready slammed the door on her pursuer as soon as Saez asked her for more, and she strode brilliantly there to win 2 1/2 lengths in 1:23, 54. The undervalued asset was held in second place by Atomally. Red Carpet Ready was acquired for $100,000 during last year’s OBS April sale after a success :10 1/5. Sales history: $180,000 ylg ’21 FTSAUG; $100,000 RNA 2yo ’22 OBSAPR.
