Making her first start in more than five months, Quiet Oasis upset seven rivals and won the $100,000 Wilshire Handicap Sunday at Betfair Hollywood Park.

Owner J. Paul Reddam and jockey Mario Gutierrez, who collected his first local stakes win, hope the result was a positive omen for Saturday's Kentucky Derby.

Gutierrez will ride the Reddam-owned I'll Have Another May 5 as the 3-year-old son of Flower Alley tries to repeat his success in the Santa Anita Derby.

A 4-year-old Irish bred filly by Oasis Dream and the Sunday Silence mare Silent Heir, Quiet Oasis, who won by a half-length, had been idle since finishing sixth of eight in the Grade I Matriarch last Nov. 25.

After recording six drills since March 7, Quiet Oasis was ready to fire for trainer Ben Cecil, winning for the third time in eight starts. Two of her wins have come in four starts in this country. She's earned $122,379.

Completing the mile on turf in 1:34.63 in the Grade III, Quiet Oasis paid $33.20, $12.60 and $6.40. Briecat, the pacesetter, and Antares World, the longest shot in the cast at 46-1, finished in a dead heat for second. Briecat returned $4 and $4.60 while Antares World paid $19 and $12.

Nereid, the 6-5 favorite who was making her 2012 debut for trainer John Shirreffs, was fourth, one length behind Quiet Oasis.

It was the first loss in four tries over the Betfair Hollywood Park turf course for the 4-year-old daughter of Rock Hard Ten, whose biggest victory came when she finished in a dead heat with Cambina in the Grade I American Oaks last July 16.

Off the board in her previous two attempts at the Wilshire distance, Quiet Oasis tracked the pace for most of the journey, then wore down Briecat late while outfinishing Antares World.
