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.
