Dos Lunas set the early pace of 23.57, 47.58, and 1:12.38 over the firm course while being stalked by Fancy Point the whole way. Entering the stretch, 14-1 More Than Real, 5th early, passed the pacesetters to open up by 3 1/2 in mid-stretch, and easily held off late-running favorite Winter Memories by 2 lengths in 1:36.61. It was just a head back to Kathmanblu third.
Winning trainer Todd Pletcher said, "We gave her some time off after the Natalma and I think that made all the difference. We had a great trip, Garrett gave her a great ride and we got a jump on the favorite."
Jockey Garrett Gomez added, "She traveled well early. I saw (Jose) Lezcano (Winter Memories) trying to make a run on the outside, I tried to make it difficult for him without impeding and did so successfully."
