Filly to run in Derby

Oka Sho runner-up Vodka, considered one of the best fillies in the country, will run in the Japanese Derby on Sunday. It is the first time in 11 years that a filly will take on the Derby since Biwa Heidi in 1996.

In Derby history, there are the only two winning fillies, Hisatomo in 1937 and Kurifuji in 1943.
