Right: The trophy presentation for the Beverly D. Barry Irwin (holding bowl) of winning ownership group Team Valor said, "(Marco Botti) talked me into running here. He's been bugging me a month, and I finally gave in. He thought she'd get the trip, but I wasn't sure because three-year-olds normally don't do as well in this race, and this filly is nuts. What really convinced me was getting a direct flight here."

Right: Euro Charline heads out for the post parade. She is the first 3-year-old to win the Beverly D. Barry Irwin will send her to the barn of Todd Pletcher to continue her racing career in the United States.

Left: Second place finisher Stephanie's Kitten in the post parade. Jockey Frankie Dettori said, "She was slow at the beginning. She walked out, I couldn't keep my position, then I'm screwed, then I'm in jail without a key. I weaved my way through, but the winner got a dream run for free on me and it's over. Bye bye. I warmed her up good, but age is telling now and the young ones are more spring chickens."

Right: Third place finisher Just The Judge heads out for the post parade. Jockey Jamie Spencer said, "She's a very European-style runner, and it took her awhile to find her best stride. I believe she'll do better with a stronger straight on a more European-style track."
