Rahystrada is campaigned by Byron Hughes for owner Robert Courtney Jr.
Rahystrada was bred in Kentucky by Jaime Carrion, Trustee and is the son of Rahy and Deputy Minister mare Ministrada.
Late-flying competitors Temeraine and Dullahan were second and third. The final time for the 1 ¼ miles on the turf was 2:01.66.
