The $100,000 Allaire DuPont Distaff Stakes (G3) featured a field of 8 older fillies and mares going 1 1/16 miles on the main track. 6-1 Canadian Mistress and 7-2 Love and Pride dueled for the lead through fractions of 23.29, 47.58, and 1:12.28. Canadian Mistress tired allowing Love and Pride to open a 1 1/2 length lead at the 1/8 pole, but 7-5 favorite Awesomemundo, 6th early, closed 5 wide to win by a head in 1:44.70 over the fast track. It was a long 4 1/2 lengths back to 12-1 Catch a Thief third.

Winning trainer Bob Baffert said, "There was a lot more pressure on Mike with this filly because she's (owned by Baffert's wife). She wasn't in the picture and Jill said to me, "why is she way back there?' I said, 'that's the way she runs.' I told Mike, 'she runs like Zenyatta a little bit, but don't count on her to make up that much ground.'".

Jockey Mike Smith added, "(Awesomeundo and Love and Pride) came together a little bit because she was gawking around at the crowd, but it wasn't anything. We had a little trouble leaving, but she proved she's very talented. She has a beautiful long kick."
