Mona de Momma with Joel Rosario aboard rallied from near the back to capture the Grade I Humana Distaff for fillies and mares.
Following instructions from trainer John Sadler "to stay outisde and start picking them off coming to the quarter pole," Rosario took his mount eight wide at the top of the stretch, catching the wire ahead of Pretty Prolific by 3/4 of a length.
"I'm always looking to be outside with her; I don't want to get stopped in traffic and all that," said Rosario. "The whole way, I wanted to stay outside."
Sadler added, "I told him to come wide. This race was tailor-made for Joel."
The win was worth $200,523 to the daughter of Speightstown out of Society Gal.
She returned $19.20, $8.80 and $5.60. Pretty Prolific paid $8.60 and $4.60. Informed Decision paid $3.20 to show.
