Divine Oath has been entered in the 4th race at Penn National on Saturday, May 31st. It is the Penn Mile S., for three-year-olds, going 1 mile on the turf. He has drawn post position 8 of 8, and will be ridden by Chris DeCarlo. The purse is $500,000, and approximate post time is 7:31.
In his last race, Divine Oath closed well to finish second after a slow start over the all weather track in the Lexington S. (G3) at Keeneland. Returning to the turf, Divine Oath has his work cut out for him taking on a top field of three-year-olds in the Penn Mile S. with the likes of Bobby's Kitten and Global View.
Divine Oath has been training well coming into the race and looks great physically. We're hoping with a solid pace to run at, he'll be in contention late.
