A field of ten older fillies and mares sprinted 6 furlongs in the $100,000 Regret Stakes. Hungarian Boatbaby led the field exiting the chute through a quarter in 22.04 before My Sister Sue took over halfway down the backstretch, getting the half in 44.74. However, in mid-stretch, Hungarian Boatbaby came back inside the final furlong to get the win by a length over late-running Solarana in 1:09.62. It was just 1/2 a length back to My Sister Sue third, while favorite Dixie Dreamer failed to fire, finishing fifth.

Winning jockey Kent Desormeaux said, "She broke as sharp as a tack. She left there bounding from the gate."
