Thistledown: Girlish Giggle rallies


Under Scott Spieth, Girlish Giggle rallied steadily through the stretch to make the lead at the sixteenth pole and draw off to a three-length win over six Ohio-bred rivals in the $75,000 Rose DeBartolo Memorial at Thistledown on Saturday. Barnsy, half of the 3-5 entry with Oh So Easy, finished second, three-quarters of a length ahead of the winner's stablemate Golden Tour. Oh So Easy failed to fire and beat one horse.

Girlish Giggle ($7), who was bred by her owner-trainer, John Bourke, got the 1 1/8 miles in 1:52.76 over a fast track.
