    But her connections cancelled the Oka Sho due to her fever.

    She won by 1+1/2 lengths.
    She and her dam Dyna Carle became the Oaks horses as a dam and filly.
  • In the Shuka Sho, she finished in 10th place because she panicked with the camera flashes and she broke during the race.
    Since then, flash photography has been banned.
