‘TDN Rising Star’ Thorpedo Anna (f, 3, Fast Anna–Sataves, by Uncle Mo) was hustled to the front by Brian Hernandez, Jr., and never looked back over the sloppy going in Friday’s GI Kentucky Oaks before a rain-soaked crowd of 107,236 at Churchill Downs. Thorpedo Anna is the first Kentucky Oaks winner for trainer Ken McPeek.

The 4-1 chance, a last out winner of Oaklawn’s GII Fantasy S. Mar. 30, carved out early fractions of :22.87 and :46.79, began to shake clear as they turned for home and kept on finding down the stretch to win by five lengths.

Champion Just F Y I (Justify) was second; Regulatory Risk (Omaha Beach) was third.

The final time for 1 1/8 miles was 1:50.83.

Thorpedo Anna is the lone graded winner for sire Fast Anna.

Sales history: $40,000 yrl ’22 FTKOCT.

Lifetime Record: 5-4-1-0.
