The 10-furlong (2,000m) Jamaica Oaks, the third Classic race of the 2017 season, has provisionally received 20 entries. The Oaks, which is a fillies-only event, is set for Saturday April 29. All horses in the Oaks carry the same weight of 126 lb (57.0 kgs).

The provisional entrants are led by 1000 Guineas winner She’s A Maneater, who again will benefit from the hands of Omar Walker. Second in the 1000, Bilingual, trained by Anthony Nunes, is also present and it is expected that jockey Robert Halledeen will ride again.

The Richard Azan-trained Money Magnet, who finished a good third in the one-mile 1000 Guineas, is present and the buzz on the racetrack is that Shane Ellis will be riding, replacing apprentice Bebeto Harvey.

Fourth in the 1000 Guineas, Marlene My Love, is entered, but with Guineas rider Dane Nelson now in Canada, trainer Dwight Chen has the task of finding a jockey for his charge. The talk among railbirds is that Ameth Robles might be the one.
