Horses with Best Chance to Win

Within the realm of equine contenders, these selections stand out as strong contenders poised for victory in the upcoming 2023 Charles Town Oaks.

Undervalued Asset 4/1

Undervalued Asset is a rising filly that deserves your attention. She is a Chad Brown trained horse and has recently earned a victory at the allowance stakes back in Saratoga in July and was second in the Forward Gal Stakes in February. Based on her previous five performances, she is a threat against other top favorites.

Imonra 6/1

Does not have the same amount of experience as other races fillies on the board, but has made the most of the competitions she has entered. Out of six starts, she has claimed two victories with one of them being the $75k Optional Claimer.

Chismosa 8/1

Chismosa has a pair of second-place finishes recently that show that she is due for a win any day now. One of these finishes was back at the Great Lady M Stakes, where she was up against a powerful opponent Eda.

Odds, Series Trends and Free Pick

The odds from MyBookie are showing that the following five horses have a great chance to win the 2023 Charles Town Oaks.


  • Vahva: 7/2

  • Interpolate: 6/1

  • Chismosa: 10/1

  • Hoosier Philly: 3/1

  • Undervalued Asset: 4/1

Hoosier Philly 3/1

Hoosier Philly, on paper, is the most dominant horse entering this race. She had success at the minor level before making the jump to the Monomoy Girl Stakes, where she took home the victory over a top-rated horse, Wet Paint.

This is a step below some of the competitors she has faced in the past, but this does not mean the field should not be counted out. She placed second in the Black-Eyed Susan, which should set her up for success here.

Final Pick: Take Hoosier Philly to Win at 3/1 odds
