Love and Pride rounded out her sophomore campaign with a pair of third-place finishes in the GI Gazelle S. at Aqueduct Nov. 26 and the Let Me Linger S. over the Big A's inner track Dec. 18. After romping over the same surface in the Affectionately H. Jan. 28, the dark bay was second-best to It's Tricky (Mineshaft) in the GII Top Flight H. Mar. 3. She faded to fourth in the GIII Sixty Sails H. at Hawthorne Apr. 21, and most recently lost a squeaker in the Allaire duPont Distaff H. at Pimlico May 19. The regally bred filly bounced out quickly to take her usual spot on the front end through splits of :47.71 and 1:11.75. Odds-on Tiz Miz Sue ranged up to challenge at the top of the stretch, but Love and Pride dug in gamely on the rail and, despite being reluctant to switch leads, forged clear late. Love and Pride's dam is a half-sister to champion and leading young sire Bernardini (A.P. Indy).
