“Ever since we drew the 1 hole, we were kind of dreading it, especially with the weather coming in. The track guys did a fantastic job with working this rail all day,” winning trainer Lacey Gaudet said. “We’ve had rain and cold weather and this rail is beautiful, so it did give us a little more confidence when we led her over here. (There was) a lot of speed; being on the inside, we knew she was going to be pressed pretty hard and she just keeps coming back at them.
“I didn’t tell (jockey Jevian Toledo) anything. He rides this filly with confidence and he knows her very well,” Gaudet said. “He got to the paddock and I gave him a fist bump and said, ‘It’s up to you now.’ That’s kind of what we’ve done the last few races with her, and he gets her home.”

“(Trainer Brittany Russell) told me not to rush him out of there and just leave him alone wherever he’s comfortable,” said winning rider Jevian Toledo. “I just let him break and settle, and when I felt he was trying to move, I made my move and he gave me everything he had. He’s a really nice horse.”

$100,000 Native Dancer
“(Trainer Claudio Conzalez) told me to get a good position and just sit behind the speed. The speed’s on the outside, so (I) just (tried to) get him to relax and go on from there,” said winning rider Angel Cruz. “At the top of the stretch, I had so much horse. When I asked Harper, he responded very well. When Cordmaker came by me, I just sat patient and waited a little bit, and when I asked him, he responded for me. He’s just a game horse. He fights to the end.”
Harpers First Ride returned $2.40 to win, $2.20 to place, and $2.10 to show. Forewarned brought back $8 to place and $3.40 to show, while Cordmaker paid $2.10 to show.
$150,000 Allaire DuPont (G3)
“I let my filly get away from there because I want to be in a good position. I let (Needs Supervision) go, and then I came around and I was in a perfect spot the whole way,” winning rider Jevian Toledo said. “Turning for home, she just had her ears up waiting for horses. I got a little bit worried because she didn’t want to switch leads and I knew they were coming, but she got the job done. She’s a nice filly.”
