FRANKLIN, KY – For the People’s Ultima D finally found the winner’s circle on Wednesday, wiring a dozen foes in the $350,000 Exacta Systems Juvenile Fillies Stakes at Kentucky Downs.
Breaking sharply from post 9 under regular rider Julio Garcia, Ultima D set a moderate pace while the field stayed packed tightly behind her. Rounding off the far turn, Garcia let her loose and she was able to hold off a late charge from Best Performance to cross the wire first for trainer Wesley Ward.
Traffic prevented Best Performance from unleashing her closing kick until a furlong before the wire, but she was at least able to use it enough to get up for second.
Go Nonni Go took third, with Katie’s Reward, Our Graycious Girl, Arabella Bella, Classy Music, Moonlight Rain, Waki Patriot, High Tech, Secret Passion, and Elizabeth Nicole completing the order of finish. My Peeps, Delaphene, Bridaled Temper, and Emmport were scratched as also-eligibles.

Ultima D returned $8 to win, $4.20 to place, and $3.20 to show. Best Performance brought back $4 to place and $3.20 to show, while Go Noni Go paid $5 to show.
