Harlan's Destiny fired a best-of-15 bullet traveling four panels in :48 2/5 at Keeneland in preparation for this appearance and took all the money at the windows for this third trip to the post. The juvenile raced in midpack down the backstretch while several paths off the rail and rallied three wide around the far turn after the leaders clocked a testing opening quarter. Harlan's Destiny hit the front at the head of the lane and after a brief duel won going away for her second black-type victory.
