A sloppy track and a rain delay that kept the runners in the Delaware Park paddock for more than 30 minutes was no bother to WinStar Farm's Dark Nile, who won the $300,000 Delaware Oaks (gr. III) by 1 1/4 lengths.
Dark Nile and Browse, the one-two finishers in the local Our Mims Stakes in early June, are among nine 3-year-old fillies entered for the $300,000 Delaware Oaks (gr. III) at Delaware Park.
The promising Pennsylvania-bred filly Dark Nile ran her record to three wins in four starts with a come-from-behind victory in the $50,000 Our Mims Stakes for 3-year-old fillies June 8 at Delaware Park.
