"She's a true racehorse. That's what they're supposed to do," trainer Dallas Stewart said. "Coming off a seven-month layoff, we just had to run her and see where her fitness level was.

Favored at 1.10-1, Forever Unbridled finished the 1 1/8-mile test in 1:49.94. Apologynotaccepted, a 13.60-1 shot who showed the way before losing her advantage in the final sixteenth, held on to finish a game second. Carrumba completed the trifecta.
"We just needed a spot to get started, and this was it," Stewart said. "We'll probably [aim for a race] at Saratoga, or maybe one at Belmont. We'll talk to Mr. Fipke and see what makes sense. He's the breeder, the owner, he's put a lot into it and he's a really great guy to work for."
