Strawberry Dawn, ridden by Debbie Hoonan, edged Decatur Princess by a head for second, and paid $2.40 and $2.20. Decatur Princess, the only maiden in the field, rallied for third and paid $4.20.

Chu and You set fractions of :21.85, :44.89 and :57.05, opening a three-length cushion into the lane.

“I had a lot of speed under me and I just tried to save the horse for the last part,” said Gutierrez. “She’s a nice filly. I had three horses in this race that I had to choose from. This time, I chose the right one.”
