OXIDE wins MSW on Churchill opening day

OXIDE (Golden Lad) made the most of opening up KY racing by winning on opening day at Churchill. He pressed the pace and then broke his maiden  by 5 1/2 lengths. OXIDE was pinhooked by Cary from a  $50,000 yearling purchase to a $120,000 2-year-old sale at Timonium last May. He is owned by Joe Sutton and trained by  Eddie Kenneally. The 3-year-old colt was bred by Dark Hollow Farm.
