Win number four for Devaux came aboard Adorabella from the rail in another romp, winning by nine lengths for trainer Jody Riedel. The win was his first of the 2020 season with the mile timed in 1:59.1.

Devaux capped of the afternoon with Master Faster from post position four to score a wire-to-wire win by three lengths in 1:58.2, pacing his last quarter in :28.4 for trainer Jimmy Nickerson.
