Trainer and Driver Michael Neafus placed the filly fifth out of the gate, going to the 1/4-mile in 29.4. Neafus had improved to third by the 1/2, in 59.3, and acquired the lead by the 3/4, in 1:28.4. Down the stretch, Neafus widened the lead with every stride while posting a :28 last quarter, to win by 21 lengths.
