Breaking from post 6 as the 7/5 favorite under Ricardo Santana, Jr., She’s a Julie cleared her inside foe and crossed over to take command heading into the first turn. Running unopposed for much of the backstretch, She’s a Julie posted fractions of :23.78 and :48.01 before Remedy and Moonlit Garden challenged her approaching the far turn. Still in hand as she hit the top of the stretch, She’s a Julie rebroke and began kicking away strongly. Put to task in midstretch, She’s a Julie cleared away to win by 2 3/4 lengths in a final time of 1:43.55 for the 1 1/16-mile event over the fast main track.
“She ran a good race,” said Santana, Jr. “That filly, she’s always loyal, always tries hard, always tries her best. She took a little time off and came back fresh and won a big race.”
Promise of Spring came rallying down the middle of the track late and was able to get up for second by 1 1/2 lengths over a weakening Moonlit Garden. Rose of Malibu necked out Remedy for fourth, while Dutch Parrot never got going after hopping at the start and settled for sixth. Sydney Freeman took seventh by a neck over Auspicious Babe, with Smart Emma and Holiday’s Angel completing the order of finish.
She’s a Julie returned to the winner’s circle for the fourth time in her last six starts and improved her overall record to 12-5-2-1.
