J.R. Plante was at the controls of the Luc Blais trainee as they rocketed off the gate from post five and into the lead. After a :29.4 opening panel, Dontalkaboutbruno (Brett MacDonald) took command to the half in 1:00.3, where Looks Like Amuscle regained the lead. Looks Like Amuscle clocked the three-quarters in 1:30.1 before stepping off to a 2-1/4 length victory in 2:00.2. Poof (Thomas Smith) was second and Nzuri (Paul Walker) rallied late to take third.
