Kicking off the stakes action on Cigar Mile day was the $250,000 Demoiselle Stakes (G2) for 2-year-old fillies going 1 1/8 miles. After 3 scratches, only 4 fillies faced the starter with maiden winner Emollient sent off as the 4-5 favorite over even-money second choice Unlimited Budget, a debut winner last out, and 7-1 Giant Cats Eye, a maiden winner in her fourth try.

Unlimited Budget went to the front and set fractions of 24.36, 48.73, and 1:13.05 while pressed by Emollient the whole way. Entering the lane, Unlimited Budget opened up a 1 1/2 length advantage, and finished up 1 1/4 lengths in front of Emollient in 1:52.16. It was a long 4 3/4 lengths back to Giant Cats Eye third.
