After Brett Miller guided American Pride to the front from post 8, she settled in the pocket behind Caviar Forthe Lady. When 7-10 favorite Rose Run Keepsake engaged Caviar Forthe Lady for the lead down the backside, American Pride saved ground and energy while staying close.
In the lane, American Pride went wide to score in 1:55.1, matching her career best. Rose Run Keepsake finished second, 1-1/4 lengths back, while Caviar Forthe Lady settled for show.
