winner of last term’s GIII Selene S. at Woodbine, closed out her sophomore season with a third in the GIII Ontario Cotillion S. at Woodbine Aug. 17. Benched until Mar. 26, the bay returned with a head success in a Gulfstream optional claimer at this distance. Let go at 5-1, she sat the perfect trip beneath a confident Javier Castellano, saving ground in fourth as I’m Already Sexy (Ready’s Image) took them through early splits of :24 and :46.98. Coffee Clique slipped through an opening on the rail in the lane to score by a half-length over Dame Marie (Smart Strike). The final time for the GII Churchill Distaff Turf Mile was 1:34.66.
