The AWESOME AGAIN filly broke sharply and settled in third as TRAIPSING set the pace with fractions of :24.31 and :50.11. The 99-1 longshot LADY PANDA tracked. On the turn, ALWAYS SHOPPING tipped to the outside and took the lead, and powered home in the stretch. GREAT ISLAND ran second followed by CAP DE CREUS, but was knocked down to third for bearing out in the stretch. 

The Via Borghese was the filly's fourth stakes win. She took the 1 1/8th mile Gazelle Stakes (G2) back in April on the dirt. She is now two for three over the Gulfstream turf. 

ALWAYS SHOPPING is a Kentucky-bred out of STOPSHOPPINGMARIA by MORE THAN READY. The mare has a lengthy resume including the G1 Frizette and G2T Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf. She has two stakes winners from four foals.
