All the mares in the race have lifetime marks of 1:53 or faster and their combined earnings total $2 million. This race was shaping up to be an impressive exhibit of talent.
Up Front Kellie Jo left hard from post 8 to clear to the front just passed the quarter in 27seconds flat and she would be the pace setter.
Betterluvnexttime, driven by Ronnie Wrenn Jr , were content to take a pocket trip behind Up Front Kellie Jo.
Mama Said went a tough first over trip and laid the pressure on Up Front Kellie Jo. Tripping the three quarters in 1:24.3.
The three quarter time popped up and Ronnie Wrenn Jr.could wait no longer and pulled the mare to the outside, three wide and she set sail.
The 6-year old mare crossed the wire in 1:53.3 and pacing her final quarter in 28.4.
Fending off late bids from Mama Said and A Sham Of Amber, who completed the trifecta.
