James Jerkens-trained Dat You Miz Blue was making her 5-year-old debut in the Correction. The five-time stakes winner's most recent previous race was a runner-up finish to Raging Fever in the Garland of Roses Handicap on Dec. 8."I thought I would make the lead with her," said jockey Richard Migliore. "She didn't give me the kind of turn of foot I counted on. I knew I was in deep water before the three-eighths pole. She just wasn't taking me. If she showed the speed I thought she was going to, we wouldn't have ended up four wide." (Chart, Equibase)
