Ima Discreet Cat, a 3-yr-old daughter of Discreet Cat earned $30,000 boosting her career earnings total to $120,303. It was her 4th win from 10 starts.
Mutuels for the winner were $9.40, $3.60 & $2.80. Shes Our Fastest paid $2.20 & $2.20 to place and True Confession paid $8.40 to show. Zarelda was fourth followed by Sing Prada Sing, Dark Desert Wine, Witt’s Town and Sexy Dance.
