Internallyflawless Scores a Mild Upset in Del Mar Oaks

Internallyflawless and jockey Garrett Gomez held off 30-1 longshot Nan to win the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks for 3-year-old fillies at 1-1/8 miles on the turf.

Internallyflawless, a daughter of Giant's Causeway, is trained by Bob Baffert for owner/breeder Charles Fipke. In her previous start she was 4th in a troubled trip in the San Clemente Handicap on Aug. 1.

The heavy favorite, Well Monied, whose chances were compromised by a slow pace and wide trip, finished third.
