On Sunday, seven Kentucky Oaks hopefuls went in the Grade 2 $150,000 Bonnie Miss Stakes at 1 1/8 miles. 5-1 third choice Teammate led at every call and drew away in the stretch to win by 6 lengths over Wonder Lady Anne L in a time of 1:48.25. 11-10 favorite Wait a While finished third. Winning trainer Allen Jerkens said, "I didn't think she'd be on the lead, but I didn't tell Cornelio (jockey Velasquez) what to do. It looks like she'll go a distance. Of course, these fillies don't have to go much farther in distance in the big races. I have no I idea what might be next, but it's just nice to win one, and you always hope they stay sound." Velasquez added, "It was pretty easy. She relaxed for me. At the quarter pole I had a lot of horse. I never hit her. She won easy today."
