She was, I was hoping she would sweep the NY Triple Tiara (she'd have been the first to do so in the current series) but she wasn't entered in the Alabama even after getting the first two legs.

FWIW, Forever Unbridled will be prepped for the Pegasus, Abel Tasman will race on at 4 and Stellar Wind ate dirt but is ok.
