She beat Tapicat by three quarters of a length in a race for 3-year-old fillies on the turf. All her recent victories were stakes races, including the Grade 1 Del Mar Oaks.
Irad Ortiz Jr. was aboard the 3-2 favorite for trainer Christophe Clement. The time for the mile, on a firm course, was 1:34.19.
Discreet Marq paid $5, $3.20 and $2.40. Tapicat returned $3.70 and $3.10 and Teen Pauline paid $3.40 to show.
