The horses are at the gate! They're all in line... and they're off!
Bonnie is the first out and she'll be the first up front with Morning Star chasing to the outside. They run out of the chute with Morning Star now taking the lead by a length and a half over Bonnie in second, there's another three back to Capricious in third, Royal Ransom will be to her outside in fourth, Evee tucked in at fifth, Lethal between horses with Angie to her outside and GUcci at ther ail, with Regatta de Blacn trailing as they run on thorugh the backstretch. Morning Star and Bonnie are beating each other up on the front end up with an opening in 24 seconds and a half in 48 flat as they each try to steal the lead from the other. Capricious still stalking in third, Royal Ransom a head back in fourth, Evee behind horses with Gucci moving up in sixth, Lethal and Angie nose to nose as Regatta de Blanc brings up the rear as they come to the turn! Bonnie and Morning Star are still head to head, Bonnie saving ground at the rail while Morning Star drifts out a bit as they round the bend and enter the final drive!
At the top of the lane with a little more than two furlongs to go, Bonnie has regained the lead by two over Morning Star after the grey filly drifted out badly on the turn. Morning Star looks done, and it'll be up to the rest of the field to challenge as Bonnie opens up with two furlongs to go! Evee and Angie take up the challenge and both are rallying strongly now on the outside, Evee rushing up between horses, Angie taking the overland route while Royal Ransom starts to get it into gear and Morning Star drops further out of contention as they hit the final furlong! Bonnie still in front but Evee is grinding down that lead, Angie at her throat with Royal Ransom another two or three back in fourth, she's hanging as Bonnie settles in for the final push, Evee not about to give her any breathing room, Angie at Evee's throatlatch as they come to the last sixteenth, BONNIE ALL OUT NOW, EVEE AND ANGIE GAINING, THESE THREE FILLIES TO THE WIRE AS BONNIE FIGHTS TO HOLD ON, EVEE AND ANGIE RELENTLESS AS THEY COME TO THE WIRE--!
Bonnie manages to hold on, with Evee second, Angie third, Royal Ranso fourth and Morning Star fifth.
