Trained by Saffie Joseph Jr., Shify She and jockey Edwin Gonzalaez were pressured from the start by Bienville Street, who began fading by the 3/16 pole once her energy was depleted.

Shifty She pressed on and gamely held off a late push from Sun Summers to win the 1 1/16-mile firm turf route by a 1/2-length in 1:40.13. The 4/5 favorite won her second consecutive start following the local 1-mile Powder Break Stakes.

Lovely Luvy took third by 1 length over Summering. Mo of the West, Bienville Street, Key Biscayne, and Forbidden Dream completed the order of finish.

Heiressindy was a Main Track Only entry.

Shifty She’s record now stands at 7-5-0-0 with $174,995 earned. The Florida-bred 5-year-old Gone Astray mare won 3 of her first 4 career starts, all in 2019, before missing 16 months and resurfacing on April 9, 2021.

Shifty She returned $3.80 to win, $3 to place, and $2.60 to show. Sun Summers brought back $6.20 to place and $4.20 to show. Lovely Luvy paid $4.60 to show.
