Coffee Clique got the kindest of head bobs to record her second straight graded victory and remain perfect in
three tries on her 4-year-old season.  "A Grade I absolutely is the pinnacle for her," winning trainer Brian
Lynch commented. "She's a homebred, which makes that family so valuable, and she's just such a
courageous filly. Just thrilled to see her dog it out like she did." He added, "It's a world title match to be here
today, to compete against this competition. But as I've always said, winning form is good form. She had won
two in a row, she fit here today, and she ran like she belonged.

Coffee Clique's win is the 32nd G1 winner for Mill Ridge Farm since 2000.  Nicoma assisted the Amerman's with this mating.

Per trainer Brian Lynch, John & Jerry Amerman are "the greatest owners ever."
