Ouija Board confirmed the faith of her owner, Lord Derby, as well as that of her backers at The Curragh on Sunday, winning the $497,000 Irish Oaks.

Supplemented to the 1 1/2-mile Group 1 classic for $49,700, the odds-on Ouija Board set a stakes record of 2:28.25, defeating Punctilious by a length. Winning trainer Ed Dunlop said that Ouija Board would go next in the 1 1/2-mile Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks at York on Aug. 18.
