Check Me Out is a two-year-old filly by Donato Hanover out of the mare Illusion Bi by Toss Out. She was bred by Az Agricola Biasuzzi SRL and Scuderia Gina Biasuzzi. She is owned by Ray Schnittker and Charles Iannazzo, trained by Ray Schnittker and Ron Pierce picked up the drive for Tim Tetrick, who unfortunately was stranded in New Jersey with George Brennan, Yannick Gingras and David Miller due to the Nor'easter.

"We just floated out of the gate and we reached the top easy enough. She is a great filly; I didn't have to ask her to go," driver Ron Pierce said.

"I was here in 2007 with Deweychetumnhowe and they said I will never have a good horse again," co-owner Charles Iannazzo said.
