The $95,000 The Very One Stakes featured older fillies and mares sprinting 5 furlongs on the turf. 4-5 favorite Unbridled Sidney broke sharpest out of the gate, pulled away to a 3 length lead on the far turn, and then easily held off all challengers to win by 3 lengths over 7-1 Wild Berry in 55.77 over the firm course, which was just 0.04 seconds off the course record.

Winning trainer Ronny Werner said, "Everything went great, just like I was hoping it would. She came in here on Wednesday and settled in really quick. She's been sleeping a lot and eating a lot and everything went exactly the way we wanted it to go for her. She can sometimes be a handful."

Winning jockey Calvin Borel, winning his first race at Pimlico in his first start, said, "She has to be in front or one-two. She's got natural speed and she put me there. And Ronny put something in the tank for her that she gave me in the end. She just left there running and went about her business."
