Jockey Martin Garcia sent 6-1 Truly Marie to the lead she she set fractions of 23.33, 48.15, and 1:12.43 while pressed by 30-1 longest shot Renee's Queen to her outside. Entering the stretch, Truly Marie tired allowing Renee's Queen to inherit the lead through 7/8 in 1:24.40. 14-1 Shrilanka, 8th early, rallied between horses late but Renee's Queen held her off by a head to pull off the upset in 1:36.36.
