One of the great rivalries in recent years: BLIND LUCK and HAVRE de GRACE!
After 5 straight seconds, Blind Luck takes back the rivalry by a nose in the 2011 Del 'Cap! This was to be the last time they would meet. Turned out to be "one for the ages"!

Video replays of their other great meetings:
2010 Delaware Oaks - A nose separates them
2010 Alabama - Another thrilling finish - By a neck
2010 - Dixon Cotillion - This time tables are turned - Again, a neck separates them
2011 Azeri Stakes - Longest margin of victory for either horse over the other
In the 2010 Breeders' Cup Ladies Classic, neither filly won that one, but, Blind Luck finished ahead of Havre de Grace by 1

International - Ireland
12:50 ET  Darley Irish Oaks, G1, Curr, $433,200, 3yo f, 1 1/2 miT  R6  CARD
CURVY has done nothing but progress this year, coming through the handicap ranks to land the Ribblesdale at Royal Ascot. The way she moved through that race suggests she has plenty more to give, so she is narrowly preferred to the unexposed Words, who took the Munster Oaks last time. English raiders Covert Love and Gretchen command respect also, in what looks a competitive renewal.
