Smart; winner in Grade 2 and Grade 1 company in the US in 2012 including the Matriarch Stakes at Hollywood Park in November; fair return in Grade 1 Jenny Wiley Stakes and runner-up in the Grade 1 Just A Game Stakes, but a beaten favourite when third in the Grade 3 Noble Damsel Stakes at Belmont in September; returned to form when taking Grade 1 First Lady Stakes at Keeneland in October, before third in the Matriarch Stakes at Hollywood Park, the same race she'd won the previous year; returned in April 2014 with a fine second in the Grade 1 Madison Stakes at Keeneland; ran well on dirt at Saratoga in the summer, winning a Listed event and finishing fourth in the Grade 1 Ballerina Stakes; only found one too good when bidding for a repeat win in the First Lady Stakes back at Keeneland, then filled same spot in Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Sprint at Santa Anita; effective over 7f-8.5f; acts on dirt, synthetics and turf.
