Breeder: Paul Tackett
*Timeform Master Rating: 109p
**TimeformUS Speed Figure earned: 83
Analysis of key prep (Grade 1 Alcibiades): Installed as the 6/5 post time favorite while making only her second career start, My Conquestadory settled in 11th position in a bunched-up field through the early stages. Jockey Eurico Da Silva patiently restrained her down the backstretch, as she was pent up and eager but without any running room. When a seam finally emerged, My Conquestadory brilliantly knifed through the breach off of the far turn and drew clear through the stretch to win by almost two lengths. Even though the margin of victory wasn't much, all eleven of her rivals lost ground from the stretch call to the finish, proving that My Conquestadory finished best of all on her way to winning her second Graded Stakes from as many career starts.

*Timeform Master Ratings are adjusted for age, so that equal ratings mean horses of equal merit. Another way of looking at it is to see the universal rating handicap as four handicaps side by side: one for two-year-olds, one for three-year -olds, one for four-year-olds and one for older horses.
**In TimeformUS past performances, neither the Timeform Performance Ratings nor the TimeformUS Speed Figures are adjusted for age.
