6-1 third choice Luna Vega trailed the field early under jockey Shaun Bridgmohan, closed on the leaders on the rail on the turn, then came out in the stretch to pass tiring horses to get third beaten 10 1/2 lengths. The Steve Asmussen-trained daughter of Malibu Moon improved her record to 4 wins, 3 seconds, and 2 thirds in 15 starts, earning $257,692 for owner Millennium Farms.
