The $200,000 Jenny Wiley Stakes (G2) features older fillies and mares going 1 1/16 miles on the turf. As expected, Forever Together was sent off as the even-money choice, making her first start since winning the Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf. Hillsborough Stakes winner Backseat Rhythm was the 7-2 second choice over 9-2 third choice I Lost My Choo, winner of the Honey Fox last out.

Kiss With a Twist battled for the lead with I Lost My Choo and Backseat Rhythm through slow fractions of 25.92, 51.83, and 1:17.12 while jockey Julien Leparoux kept Forever Together near the back of the field for the first 6 furlongs. On the turn, Leparoux took her wide for the drive and she reeled in the leaders on her own while being followed by 6-1 Rutherienne. The pair battled up to the 1/8 pole, when Forever Together pulled ahead to win by 1 length in 1:46.93 over the good turf course. It was just a neck back to pacesetter Kiss With a Twist third.
