The $610,000 Three-Year-Old Filly Pace featured a full field of ten, with Native Bride the 4-5 choice over 5-1 Tug River Princess and 6-1 Btwnurheartnmine.

8-1 A and G’s Confusion, with David Miller in tow, took the early lead but promptly yielded to Btwnurheartnmine down the backstretch. She was shuffled back as first Tug River Princess, then Knock Three Times made their way to the top. Miller maneuvered his filly to the outside in the stretch and she edged away to a half-length victory in 1:51. Tug River Princess and Native Bride, both supplemental entries to the Crown, finished second and third, respectively.

Winning driver David Miller said, "I left the gate hard and turned Timmy Tetrick (behind Btwnurheartnmine) loose, but we started to get the shuffle and finally got out at the end."

Trainer Casie Coleman added, "Mark Capone had done very well with her and made $1 million with her. She got a little dull and just needed a change. She was feeling great tonight and Dave gave her the perfect steer. I give a lot of credit to my assistant trainer and the caretaker of this horse, too."
