27-1 longest shot Queen of Hearts settled in midpack fourth early under regular rider Jose Espinoza, accelerated to the front to open a clear lead at the 1/8 pole but was unable to hold off the winner. The James Jerkens-trained daughter of Thunder Gulch out of Fain mare Betrayer improved her record to 2 wins, 1 second, and 3 thirds in 7 starts, earning $157,062 for owners Susan Moore and M and M Thoroughbred Partners.
