Equineline PPs. KY Oaks Points: 54.

She’s more steady than spectacular and did only win the Busher by a nose. But she beat a decent field that included GII Demoiselle S. winner Lake Avenue and managed to overcome a wide trip. She probably has to improve, but seems to be getting better with each start. “The pace helped us,” trainer Rudy Rodriguez said. “The two top horses didn’t run their race and that helped us. She’s a grinder and she kept coming and coming.” Bought for just $50,000 at the 2018 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky Select yearling sale, Water White will likely turn up next in the Apr. 4 GII Gazelle S.
