Giant Filly Wins Florida Oaks
Lightly raced filly Andina Del Sur (3f Giant’s Causeway x Andina, by Singspiel) showed real class to score a tenacious win in the $150,000 Grade III Florida Oaks at Tampa at just her fourth start.
A winner on debut at Belmont last October for the Thomas Albertani stable, Andina Del sur was placed in two subsequent Graded runs before breaking through in this 1 and 1/16th mile turf assignment.
She travelled back in the field and hit the line hard to win by a head and has now won over $150,000 in prizemoney.
A homebred for the Don Alberto Corporation, she is the best of two winners from stakes-winner Andina and is the 178th stakes-winner for champion sire Giant’s Causeway.
