The daughter of BATED BREATH now has three stakes wins to her credit and has been Group-placed four times. 

Feel Glorious finished fastest amongst a competitive group to earn her first victory of the year and 16th of the meet for trainer Christophe Clement. Away well in a race devoid of true pace players, Feel Glorious settled into a hard-held, mid-pack spot and was still under a hammerlock as they spun for home. Junior Alvarado worked her out into the clear by mid-stretch, and she ran to daylight to get the job done.

"She's such an exciting filly because you always have a shot," said winning co-owner Dean Reeves. "Once she clears, she just takes off. It's just amazing. The kick that she has, it's as good as anybody. So when I saw her get in the clear, it was pretty exciting and I thought we had a great shot to run the leaders down."

"It was a perfect ride because if you get her in position where she's not too far back, you know you have acceleration at some point. Junior is getting to where he knows this filly really well. He knows what he has at the end. His timing was impeccable."
