Lady Of Shamrock Wins US Gr1 Del Mar Oaks
At Del Mar in the US, sophomore filly Lady of Shamrock (Scat Daddy–Blushing Issue, by Blushing John) scored a 0.5-length victory for trainer John W Sadler over Stormy Lucy (Stormy Atlantic–Here Comes Lucinda, by Dixieland Band) & Open Water (Include–Biscayne Bay, by AP Indy) in the US$300,000 Gr1 Del Mar Oaks (1800m) for 3YO fillies. A US$80,000 yearling at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Sale & later a US$11,000 2YO at this year's Fasig-Tipton Maryland May Sale, Lady of Shamrock took her record to 6 wins (including last start's Gr1 American Oaks at Hollywood) from 10 starts.
