The lightly raced Potesta, who romped by 11 1/2 lengths in her maiden score May 3 at Hollywood Park, was making her first start since getting her nose down over Eden's Moon (Giant's Causeway) in a stirring renewal of the GII Hollywood Oaks June 23. Put right on the lead by Joe Talamo, she clipped off honest-enough :23.14, :46.96, and 1:11.05 fractions. Asked for her best in upper stretch, she kicked away impressively and powered home 7 1/2 lengths in advance of Viva Carina while scoring in track-record setting time.
