The opening quarter hosted a shuffle between Money Shot Hanover, Zero Tolerance and Tall Drink Hanover before McCarthy gained the lead with the daughter of Captaintreacherous. The first quarter went in :26.4.
As Tall Drink Hanover led the field to a half in :56.2, race-favorite Warrawee Ubeat brushed strongly to challenge on the outside, looking at first as if she could take over the lead. However, Tall Drink Hanover was steady and stubborn and best as the two were dueling into three-quarters at 1:22.4.
Zero Tolerance stepped lively into the stretch but Warrawee Ubeat could not hustle to stay with Tall Drink Hanover and began to fade and stray a bit. Another threat surfaced when from the inside Zero Tolerance hooked up with the leader for a minor duel but Tall Drink Hanover won that, too, and finished in 1:51.3.
Beautyonthebeach got third, Warrawee Ubeat held on for fourth and Renaissance Lady K finished fifth to also make the final.
