But on Sunday afternoon at Jägersro it was time to change that. The longest shot on the board, Dorcia did what many thought wasn't possible.

The jockey waited until the top of the home stretch to use her speed and with an incredible rally, she flew past the two favorites Gold Tyranny and Stricker just before the finish line.
