So Long My Love (American Ideal-Letmedowneasy-Camluck) started from post seven. She was fifth through the blistering :26.3 opening panel. Wrenn moved So Long My Love in the second turn and she remained first over for the remainder of the mile, through fractions of :55, 1:24 and 1:54.1. She was a neck in front of the competition at the finish.

Thursday's win was the seventh victory this year and 11th career score for So Long My Love. It boosted her lifetime earnings to $68,253. She returned $8.60 to win.
