That's Joseph's first winner for me. He gave her a great ride. It's a great way to start with her. I've only had her four to six weeks. She was quite smart for Paul Cole over in England. She has been Group and Listed race placed over there. She maintained her form and didn't have to improve to win. She's a grand straightforward filly and likes reasonable ground. I'll step her up in grade and trip. She stays one mile four to one mile six very well. It's the first horse I have for the Hay's. They also own Fame And Glory and Cape Blanco. David Wachman, trainer
