Devil May Care class of Coaching Club American Oaks at Saratoga

SARATOGA SPRINGS - Heavily favored Devil May Care took command leaving the stretch turn and drew away to an authoritative four-length victory in the $250,000 Coaching Club American Oaks for 3-year-old fillies yesterday at Saratoga Race Course.

John Velazquez rode the Todd Pletcher-trained Devil May Care to her third straight victory over members of her own gender, a streak interrupted by a 10th-place finish in the Kentucky Derby.

The Coaching Club Oaks, in which she ran 1 1-8 miles in 1:49.42 after being rated behind a moderate pace, was her fifth career win from eight career starts. Biofuel was second and Acting Happy finished third of six.

Devil May Care earned $150,000 for owner Glencrest Farm and paid $3.40 to win.
