Arts And Flowers released Sayulita to the lead approaching the quarter mile in 27.4 seconds. Sayulita then marched to the half-mile in 57 seconds, while Goin Again mounted a first over bid, with Empress Deo second over to three-quarters in 1:25.1.

Trained by Phyllis Copeland, it was the 4th win of the season for the 6-year-old Artistic Fella mare.
Driver Victor Kirby had four wins on the program. (Harrington)
