The homebred daughter of Tom Ridge-Sand Lavender Blu and driver Brett Miller left from Post 3 and reached the top at the opening quarter mark in :28.3. The 1-2 favourite proceeded to the half in :57 and three-quarters in 1:25.2 before kicking home for her sixth victory in eight starts.
Sand Violent Blu shaved three-fifths of a second off Honorable Daughter’s world record on a five-eighths mile track, which was set in 2008 at Dover Downs.
Oasis Dream (Dave Palone) finished second off a pocket trip and Blue Yonder (Yannick Gingras) followed in third.
The consolation went to the Tom Haughton-trained Voluptuous Ronda (Broadway Hall-Hawaiian Delight) and Dave Palone in 1:56.4.
