Tribal Gal takes Oak Tree Distaff

Tribal Gal, champion Arizona-bred 3-year-old filly of 2013, was an authoritative winner of the $100,870 Oak Tree Distaff at the Oak Tree at Pleasanton meet on June 28. The daughter of Tribal Rule, running for owner-breeder John Pendergast, ran six furlongs in 1:09.25.

Tribal Gal rushed up to take the lead shortly after the start and after dueling with Handful of Pearls early, pulled away to an eventual three and a quarter-length victory. It was her first win of the season from three starts.
