5-1 third choice Munnings set the pace 2 paths off the rail under regular rider John Velazquez, battled between Rachel Alexandra and Summer Bird into the stretch, then tired late to finish third beaten 7 lengths.

The Todd Pletcher trained son of Speightstown out of Holy Bull mare La Comete improved his record to 3 wins, 2 seconds, and 2 thirds in 8 starts, earning $547,240 for owners Michael Tabor, Mrs. John Magnier, and Derrick Smith.
