No. 5 MY PHILLY GIRL: Was just pulling jockey Mike Smith out of the saddle, but he took hold and got in tight on the backstretch which cost this filly. She saved ground moving up on the turn, but had too much work to do and had to settle for a better than looked third. Next time the job will get done.
