Older fillies and mares were entered in the $150,000 Suwannee River Handicap (G3) but because the race was taken off the turf, the race was downgraded to listed. Seven entrants scratched, leaving just five to travel the 1 1/8 miles. 6-5 favorite Eyes on Eddy stalked the pace down the backstretch, took over with 3/16 mile to go, and then held off 5-2 second choice Tattinger Rose in the final 70 yards to win by 1/2 a length. The time was 1:49.66.
Winning jockey Rafael Bejarano said, "My horse broke good, but I wanted to try and stay behind early. When that other horse (Marchonin) moved a little early, I had to go because I wanted to stay clear on the outside of him, but then that other horse came on the outside of me (Taittinger Rose), so I just tried to keep my horse going between them." Eyes on Eddy will start next in the Grade 2 Rampart Handicap on March 25, according to trainer Paul McGee.
