Sophomore fillies take center stage this Sunday at historic Saratoga Race Course. A field of six will line up with hopes of taking home the second leg of the NYRA Filly Triple Crown, the Coaching Club American Oaks.

The Coaching Club American Oaks is one of the premiere races for 3-year-old fillies in the nation. The 1 1/8 mile race was named after the Coaching Club of America, whose membership requirement included the ability to handle a coach and four horses with a single group of reins. Great fillies such as Ruffian, Top Flight, Davona Dale, and My Flag have won the race in the past.

The race will be televised live on FOX Sports 1 as part of The Jockey Club Tour on FOX along with the Eddie Read Stakes at Del Mar.

Jen Ferguson

Jen Ferguson is an artist whose interest in depicting racehorses and track life goes back to early childhood, when she was obsessed with drawing horses and jockeys out of Blood-Horse magazines she got from her uncle, who owned and raced Thoroughbreds. In fact, her first childhood drawings were of racehorses.

In 2009, she published a book of drawings and stories based on expeditions to Aqueduct titled “Railbirds: My Life at the Track.” Jen spent last August working on drawings at Saratoga Race Course and plans to return for the 2013 meet. She currently works in Brooklyn, N.Y., where she draws regularly at Aqueduct and Belmont Park. If you see her sketching at the track, say hello!
