In the $150,000 Early Times Mint Julep Stakes (G3), a field of six older fillies and mares went 1 1/16 miles on the turf. 3-1 second choice Quite A Bride captured the event in gate to wire fashion, taking the lead and slowing the pace down to 24.84, 48.49, and 1:11.71 while loose on the lead. Entering the stretch, Inca King accelerated away from 7-2 third choice Magnificent Song to win by 2 1/4 lengths in a new course record clocking of 1:48.94 over firm turf. 4-5 favorite Danzon finished third.
Winning jockey Robby Albarado said, "There was no secret what I was going to do once Rich Fantasy scratched out of the race. I figured it was just a matter of how slow I could get her going on the front end. She did it within herself and she had her ears up and she felt some pressure from the outside and kind of stretched herself out and finished up well."
