9-2 fifth choice Herboriste sprinted clear soon after the start and set a moderate pace under jockey Garrett Gomez, but was no match for Mauralakana late, finishing second. The Michael Matz trainee improved her record to 2 wins, 2 seconds, and 3 thirds in 15 starts, earning $130,329 for owner Amelie Ehrnrooth.

3-1 second choice Hostess was hard held in hand by jockey John Velazquez early, split horses while rallying on the turn, and finished willingly to get third place. The H. James Bond trainee improved her record to 3 wins, 3 seconds, and 6 thirds in 18 starts, earning $288,708 for owner William Clifton Jr.
