Love Theway Youare had faced off against Include Me Out several times this year at level weights and had come up short each time, finishing fourth to the favorite in the GII La Canada S. and second in the GI Santa Margarita S. at Santa Anita Jan. 22 and Mar. 17, respectively. She tried her luck in Churchill's GII La Troienne S. May 4 to no avail, running seventh throughout, and made an ignominious return in the GII Marjorie L. Everett S. (ex Milady) at this track two weeks later, when she lost her rider at the start. Content to settle well off the pace set by 5-2 Rock and Glory (Rock Hard Ten), the Myung Kwon Cho colorbearer looked to be running for second when Include Me Out swept to the lead on the far turn. However, the 122-pound highweight didn't really drop the hammer in the stretch, and jockey Garrett Gomez went to work aboard Love Theway Youare, who kept on coming down the center of the track to post the upset. "I could see that horse starting to come back a little bit and I said, 'Well, I think I have her now,'" Gomez said. "This filly just keeps staying and she did so again today. She kept coming and coming. She doesn't have any kind of gear, she's just one-paced the whole time." Jockey Joe Talamo took the blame for the favorite's defeat. "She has a kind of tendency to pull herself up," he admitted. "You know, when I passed [Caelis and Atlantic Swing], I really thought the race was over. We've always beat [Love Theway You are] so far, so many times. In hindsight, I wish I would have waited a little longer. Every time I've ridden her I've always tried to steal the race at the quarter pole. That's a brutal way to get beat in a Grade I."
