La Tia continued to lead to the 1/8 pole, but Dank, 6th early, unleashed a powerful late rally down the center of the course to win by 4 1/4 lengths over late-running 12-1 Gifted Girl in 1:53.38, just 0.18 seconds off the course record. It was another 1 1/2 lengths back to 21-1 Ausus third, and a nose back to favorite Marketing Mix fourth.

I thought she was coming into this in unbelievable shape. She's been real aggressive all year. She wasn't at her best over the last couple, but she was in excellent condition coming into this, and when she kicked in it was all over."

Right: Dank in the post parade. Owner James Wigan said, "She has such a great turn of foot. Obviously she has improved over the last year."

Left: Second place finisher Gifted Girl in the post parade. Jockey Tom Queally said, "She ran well, but obviously she wasn't going to beat the winner. We had a lovely run around. She was slowly away, but she ran a super race. There's still more to come for her.""

Right: Third place finisher Ausus in the post parade. The 21-1 shot was last early under jockey James Graham, but rallied to get third beaten 5 3/4 lengths. The Dan Peitz trainee improved her record to 4 wins, 3 seconds, and 2 thirds in 14 starts, earning $331,733 for owner-breeder Shadwell Farm.


Fourth place finisher and beaten favorite Marketing Mix in the paddock before the race. Jockey Gary Stevens said, "She was a little keen early and was pulling pretty good. She didn't relax for me like she normally does. Normally she gives me a feeling of confidence into the far turn, but I didn't have that today. I knew then it was going to be difficult."

In the first division, 5-2 second choice Liz Pendens set the pace of 23.66 46.77, and 1:11.13. 6-1 I'm Already Sexy, who pressed the pace the whole way, took over the lead at the 1/8 pole and drew off to win by 4 3/4 lengths over late-running 7-1 Bold Kitten in 1:40.93. It was a head back to 9-5 favorite My Option third.
