Once again, it paid to make the pace, as Jaywalk made all the running before drawing clear for an impressive victory in the Grade One Tito’s Handmade Vodka Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies.

Ten two year old fillies went to post for this race on the dirt, over one mile and ½ a furlong.

Jaywalk and Serengetti Empress were well away, with Bellefina coming to join in at the first turn.

Settling down and heading into the back stretch, Jaywalk went 1 ½ lengths up on Serengetti Empress, with Bellefina next.

Jaywalk still led into the top of the stretch, with Bellefina poised and Restless Rider to the inside.

Straightening up, Jaywalk still led and found more as Restless Rider and Vibrance struggled to close.

Jaywalk and Joel Rosario powered on to win by six lengths from Restless Rider, Vibrance and the disappointing Bellefina.
