Emmzy draws post 8 for Saturday's Dogwood S.
Zayat Stables LLC’s Indiana Oaks (G2) runner-up Emmzy was assigned the outside post in a field of eight 3-year-old fillies as she attempts to land her first stakes victory in Saturday night’s $100,000 Dogwood S. at Churchill Downs.

Emmzy, who was transferred from Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert to the care of locally-based  horseman Brad Cox earlier this month, could vie for favoritism in a competitive group sophomore fillies. She'll be ridden by Brian Hernandez, Jr.

Emmzy (7-2-2-0—$126,861) will cut back in distance after running second to Family Tree in the $203,200 Indiana Oaks over 1 1/16 miles at Indiana Grand on July 16. 

Following the race, Emmzy returned to California, but then was shipped to Kentucky in early September and has recorded a pair of four-furlong workouts for Cox at Churchill Downs.

The Dogwood, won last year by Super Majesty in a stakes record 1:23.02, will be run as Race 9 at 10:11 p.m. ET.
