The win marks the fourth in eight career starts for Riskaverse, who won the listed Miss Grillo Stakes as a 2-year-old after finishing third in the Frizette Stakes (gr. I), 15 1/2 lengths behind the winner, You. Following the Miss Grillo, she shipped west to run second in the Miesque Stakes (gr . IIIT) at Hollywood Park."I was impressed with the way she bulled her way through and got up," said trainer Pat Kelly. "We'll keep our options open. She has to be considered one of the best 3-year-old turf fillies in the country right now."Bred in Kentucky by her owner, Riskaverse (Dynaformer -- The Bink, by Seeking the Gold) is a half-sister to Valley View Stakes (gr. IIIT) winner Cozzy Corner (by Cozzene).
