The $200,000 Allaire du Pont Breeders' Cup Distaff Stakes (G2) featured older fillies and mares go 1 1/16 miles on the main track. Kettleoneup, winner of the Sixty Sails at Hawthorne last time out, was sent off as the 6-5 favorite over Leah's Secret at 4-1 off her fifth place finish in the Humana Distaff at Churchill Downs.

5-1 Fiery Pursuit led the way early through fractions of 24.62, 48.78, and 1:12.96 while being chased by 6-1 Rolling Sea and Leah's Secret. Favorite Kettleoneup was unhurried early in fifth. On the far turn, Rolling Sea took over the lead from the tiring Fiery Pursuit, and pulled away to a 2 1/2 length lead with a furlong to go. Leah's Secret put in a late rally but was left with too much ground to make up, as Rolling Sea cruised to a 2 1/4 length victory in 1:42.88. It was just 3/4 length back to favorite Kettleoneup in third.
