Proud Spell Wins US Gr1 Delaware Oaks

Monday, 14th July 2008

US Gone West stallion Proud Citizen was responsible for a Gr1 victory when filly Proud Spell (Proud Citizen-Pacific Spell, by Langfuhr) packed too many guns for her rivals in the US$500,000 Gr1 Delaware Oaks (1 1/16th mile) for 3YO fillies at Delaware Park on the US east coast. Ridden by Gabriel Saez for Larry Jones, Proud Spell was almost a length clear at the line over fellow fillies African Violet (Lemon Drop Kid-Run Ameadowstar, by Cherokee Run) & She's All Eltish (Eltish-Shesabullwinkle, by Hesabull). Winner of the Gr1 Kentucky Oaks in May, Proud Spell suffered a chequered passage in last month's Gr1 Mother Goose Stakes where she finished runner-up.
