Champagne Anyone overtook leader Cookie Dough in deep stretch and held off the late challenge of Dunbar Road to win the G2 Gulfstream Park Oaks by a half-length March 30.
The three-year-old daughter of Street Sense earned her first Graded Stakes victory in the Gulfstream Park Oaks. She previously had been third in both the G2 Davona Dale Stakes and G3 Forward Gal Stakes.
Ridden patiently by jockey Chris Landeros, Champagne Anyone sat just off the pace in second through the early stages of the race. At the top of the stretch, Champagne Anyone drew even with longtime leader Cookie Dough. The duo matched strides briefly before Champagne Anyone put her rival away. She then held off the late bid of Dunbar Road to win by a half-length.
