Lemons Forever

Lemons Forever was the winner of the 132nd Kentucky Oaks on May 5, 2006. Her win was the largest upset in the history of the Oaks. [http://racing.bloodhorse.com/viewstory.asp?id=33429]

The Kentucky Oaks had a full field of fourteen fillies, with Lemons Forever posting the worst odds, at 47-1. She trailed throughout the race, only to rally late and win by 1 1/2 lengths.

A $2 bet on Lemons Forever paid $96.20, and a $2 trifecta paid $12,186.60. [http://www.courier-journal.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060505/SPORTS0801/60505027&SearchID=73243666090006]

She did not make a run for the Triple Tiara of Thoroughbred Racing, the filly equivalent of the Triple Crown, as she did not compete in the second leg of the competition, the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes, on May 19.

Lemons Forever was sired by Lemon Drop Kid. Her dam was the Argentinian Thoroughbred mare Critikola.
