DARK NILE WINS THE OUR MIMSThe Maryland-based filly Dark Nile remained perfect in three starts since she began racing around two turns by running down 9-5 favorite Browse in Wednesday’s $50,625 Our Mims Stakes
for 3-year-old fillies at Delaware Park. The Our Mims, at a mile and 70 yards, is a local prep for the Grade 3, $300,000 Delaware Oaks at 1 1/16 miles on July 9.

Dark Nile ($16.20), ridden for the first time by Joe Bravo, was a close-up fourth, 2 1/2 lengths behind pacesetter Browse, through six furlongs in 1:13.01. Bravo urged Dark Nile to launch her
rally from the outside during the stretch drive. She put a head in front of Browse at the eighth pole and prevailed by three-quarters of a length, completing the distance in 1:44.47 over a surface rated “good.”

Browse, shipping in from New York for trainer Shug McGaughey following a nose victory in a firstlevel optional $80,000 claimer a month ago, was a clear second under Jose Ortiz. It was another
4 3/4 lengths back to 15-1 outsider Dreams to Reality. Miss Inclusive, coming off a win in the $101,000 Parx Oaks, was fourth, 2 3/4 lengths behind Dreams to Reality. Martini Glass, the $16,000 claim who had won her first three career starts, finished seventh at 8-1. The Chad Brown-trained Clair de Lune was ninth at 3-1. A daughter of Pioneerof the Nile (https://www.winstarfarm.com/horses/pioneerof-the-nile-5058.html) trained by Arnaud Delacour for WinStar Farm, Dark Nile is now 3 for 4 lifetime with earnings of $63,980. Delacour said Dark Nile is a possibility for the Delaware Oaks.

“If she comes back well, we will consider it,” Delacour said. “We have plenty of options with her since she is a Pennsylvania-bred, but the Delaware Oaks would be a nice place to come back
because she likes the track.”
