"She's a fighter," said Migliore. "I can't say enough good things about her. Every time a horse comes near her, she pins her ears and give you another gear. She was traveling so comfortably at the half-mile pole that I knew we were going to have a big shot at winning it." The winner returned $9.60, $2.80 and $2.10. Beautiful America paid $2.30 and $2.10, and Combanchera $2.10.(Chart, Equibase)
