Indulgence seemed aggravated in the post parade, shaking her head, but it was Stormin Maggy, half-sister to Afleet Alex, who reared and dumped her rider. But, she didn't go far and Brian Hernandez was soon back aboard. She's a Fleet (Afleet Alex) was squeezed at the start and spotted the field many lengths early. She did manage to catch the field, but still finished last. Too early to make a judgement on this one, until she gets a good break. She also appears to be a big girl, and would probably benefit from more distance. Meanwhile, up front Brown Eyed Baby went right to the lead and didn't look back. She extended her advantage throughout to win by more than 5. She looks like she could be a nice one. Indulgence chased throughout, while Miss Dixie Rose gained late to pick up third.
