Winning jockey Rajiv Maragh said, "The gates opened and she broke sharp. I didn't want her to run up early, so I kind of took hold of her right away. The pace slowed down more than I was hoping it would, but she was comfortable being in the back of the pack because there was nobody really chasing behind her, so she got real comfortable and got happy. And, she's an awesome filly, so once she does that she's going to finish all the time. She's honest, she's always consistent, so I knew I knew I was going to get a good run from her and it was good enough!"
