Ten other 3-year-old fillies sprinted 7 furlongs in the Grade 2 $100,000 Forward Gal Stakes. 18-1 longshot Miraculous Miss sat at the back of the pack down the backstretch, then took the turn wide to pass tiring horses and rallied well down the stretch to win by 1 3/4 lengths over India in a time of 1:22.78. 5-2 favorite Joint Effort disappointed in seventh. Winning trainer Steve Klesaris said, "We felt confident to go in this one knowing she'd be able to come from off the pace with 11 horses in front of her. We'll possibly look at the Comely Stakes (Aqueduct). As far as her best distance, we don't know that yet. She's picked up another furlong every race, except for the slop race, and she's answered the bell every time." Jockey Jeremy Rose added, "I had a pretty good trip. They went pretty fast the first part of it, so at about the 5/16 pole, I just swung around all the horses in front of me. I thought I had enough horse to make it, because they went so quick, and she did fine."
