As expected, Indian Blessing went to the lead immediately and Proud Spell stalked her in second, as the champion clicked off fractions of 24.53, 48.17, and 1:12.80 in a virtual match race. The two other fillies in the field, Acacia and Wisconsin Lady, contested their own match race as many as 12 lengths back of the leaders. Indian Blessing continued to lead to the 1/8 pole, but jockey Gabriel Saez eased Proud Spell out for the drive, allowing the daughter of Proud Citizen to eat into Indian Blessing's lead. Proud Spell found another gear and powered ahead at the 1/16 pole to win going away by 2 1/4 lengths in 1:44.01. It was a long 11 1/2 lengths back from Indian Blessing to Acacia, and another 9 1/4 to Wisconsin Lady last.
