16-1 shot Touching Beauty broke awkwardly then raced in third early under jockey Edgar Prado, dropped back at the 1/2 mile pole, then came on late to get second beaten 2 3/4 lengths. The James Jerkens-trained daughter of Tapit out of Ikari mare Victory Road improved her record to 1 win and 1 second in 2 starts, earning $80,000 for owner-breeder Gainesway Thoroughbreds.
