Turning into the stretch, Nillabomb found the clear road she needed out widest of all to brush home through a blowing rain and drizzle to stop the clock in 1:54.2. Looney Dune gamely persisted for second and Shes A Pegase weaved through stretch for third.

It was the milestone 40th career win for Florida fan favourite Nillabomb, thanks to her distinctive roan color and commonplace game efforts. Eric Beach has trained the seven-year-old daughter of Admirals Galley-Be A Little Lady to career earnings of more than $428,000 from her humble beginnings on the Michigan Fair Circuit. Ownership is held by Trifecta 246 LLC of Boca Raton, FL.
