The $750,000 Beverly D. Stakes is the female counterpart to the Arlington Million, with a field of 10 older fillies and mares going 1 3/16 miles on the turf. Just A Game Stakes winner Gorella was the 6-5 favorite over R.G. Dick Handicap winner Honey Ryder and All Along Stakes winner Film Maker, who each went off at 3.30-1 as the co-second choices.

Despite losing a show on the clubhouse turn, 14-1 shot Live Life was loose on the lead most of the way around, setting a moderate pace of 23.33, 46.82, 1:11.18, and 1:36.19. Through the stretch, the pacesetter looked like she was all set to steal it on the front end, but Gorella, who raced back in ninth early, had come out 6 wide on the far turn and was closing well. Gorella ran right by the tiring pacesetter to win by 1 3/4 lengths, easily holding off the late charge of Film Maker in a time of 1:55.71. Live Life barely hung on to third by a nose over Honey Ryder.
