True Sensation beat three other Maryland-bred fillies and mares in yesterday's $75,000 All Brandy Stakes.

The race, which was originally scheduled for the turf, was contested in pouring rain and over the muddy main track at Pimlico Race Course. A Queen's Smile, the morning-line favorite, and two others were scratched after the race was switched.

River Cruise spurted to the front from her outside post and opened a four-length lead down the backstretch. As GraceBay and Sweep Up slipped farther behind, only jockey Erick Rodriguez and True Sensation had a chance to deny victory from the front-runner.

True Sensation collared River Cruise entering the homestretch and edged away. She covered the nine furlongs in 1 minute, 53.01 seconds, 1 1/2 lengths ahead of River Cruise. GraceBay held on for third.
