She’s a Julie is a perfect example of a horse who needed time to mature before reaching peak form. After winning her debut as a 2-year-old at Churchill Downs, the daughter of Elusive Quality lost five straight races and wasn’t competitive in two prep events on the Road to the 2018 Kentucky Oaks. But She’s a Julie showed gradual improvement toward the end of 2018. She won the Iowa Oaks (G3) and Remington Park Oaks (G3) and placed second in the Alabama Stakes (G1).
