The undercard feature was the $30,000 Princess Cup, a 6 furlong sprint restricted to older fillies and mares who have started at least twice at Fort Erie this season. Mountain Echo, a runner-up in a $30,000 claimer last out, was sent off as the 4-5 favorite over 7-2 My Natalie and 8-1 Classical Humour. My Natalie dueled for the lead with 14-1 Time Sharing through an opening 1/4 in 22.17 before Mountain Echo took over at the top of the lane through 1/2 in 45.01. Mountain Echo, with regular rider Melanie Pinto in the irons, quickly opened up a 5 length lead through 5/8 in 57.29 and finished under wraps 4 3/4 lengths in front of late-running 15-1 Striking Miss in 1:10.73. It was another 3/4 lengths back to 9-1 fourth choice Grace by Moonlight third.

Six-year-old mare Mountain Echo, trained by Richard Davis, improved her record to 11 wins, 4 seconds, and 11 thirds in 44 starts, earning $231,658 for owners Jim Schlehr and Dave Ford.
