Virginia-bred South Andros won the Justakiss Stakes at Delaware Park on June 5. Bred by Chance Farm and owned in partnership by Chance Farm and Hillwood Stable, daughter of Sky Mesa is trained by Rodney Jenkins. The Justakiss, 1 1/16 miles on the dirt, was the gray filly’s stakes debut, and she acquitted herself with class: After breaking from the four-hole, the 4-year-old moseyed along in the opening stages of the race, running four-wide through the far turn. In third place in the straight, South Andros responded to strong handling by Xavier Perez and closed on the leaders with a length to spare at the wire.

Also on June 5, Ghost Is Fine, bred by Althea D. Richards and Adena Springs, broke her maiden by half a length at Presque Isle Downs. The 4-year-old daughter of Ghostzapper is out of the Lear Fan mare Finery and is entered in an allowance at Mountaineer on Saturday, June 21.
