The undercard feature on Saturday was the $100,000 Yaddo Handicap for New York-bred older fillies and mares going 1 1/8 miles on the inner turf. 23-1 longshot Latitude Forty stalked the pace set by 7-2 second choice Factual Contender through a half in 48.67 and 3/4 in 1:12.65 over the firm course. At the top of the stretch, Kent Desormeaux asked Latitude Forty for run and got it as she surged to the front at the 1/8 pole and drew away to win by 1 1/4 lengths in 1:47.84. Even-money favorite J'ray lacked any rally after racing in seventh early, finishing sixth.
Winning jockey Kent Desormeaux said, "I was so hopeful to do well
with her today. I felt one got away from me when I rode her here last
year; she bolted at the start. It was nice that we could put it together
here. She gave me a good ride. The pace quickened dramatically after the
half. She was able to keep up with them going around the turn. She
reeled them in and stayed with them. She had to fight for her position
at the 1/4 pole, but she did it for me."
