Winning trainer Tommy Drury Jr. said: “Everything that went wrong, went wrong except for the finish. She broke slow, was stuck behind horses and never got into a good position until late. But, what can I say, I’m just so happy to win this race and win my first stakes win at Churchill Downs for these owners. We sent her to Fair Grounds over the winter and she ran okay but then we decided to bring her home to Turfway. We were a little uncertain how she’d handle this turf course but she seemed to love it. These type of races are the reason why we get up each morning. The entire stretch she was trying to find a spot to go through and when she got through it was an unbelievable feeling.”

Lady Edith is a 3-year-old daughter of Street Boss and she improved her record to 6-3-0-0 and has earned $123,578 for owners David J. Richardson and Sandra New.

Lady Edith returned $51.60 to win, $22.80 to place, and $11.00 to show.
