Kicking off the stakes action on Woodbine Oaks day was the $100,000 Alywow Stakes for 3-year-old fillies sprinting 6 1/2 furlongs on the turf. Jockey Patrick Husbands sent 3-1 second choice Dene Court to the lead and she set fractions of 23.16 and 46.43 over the good turf course, while pressed by 4-1 third choice Man Stuff and 3-4 favorite Tu Endie Wei. Into the lane, Dene Court continued to lead, getting 3/4 in 1:11.71, and was all out to hold off late-running 10-1 Blue Heart to get the win by a neck in 1:18.79. It was a head back to Man Stuff and late-running 9-1 Sky Dreamer who dead-heated for third, while favorite Tu Endie Wei faded badly to finish last beaten 11 1/4 lengths.

Winning jockey Patrick Husbands said, "I was trying to get away from them halfway down the lane and as we got away from them, she stopped. And when they came back, she was going again. She's all about class."
