Outlawgrabbingears cleared control from post 7 while pylon-starter Hf Jesse James secured the pocket heading to a :27.3 first quarter. Outlaw Gunsablazin, positioned fifth, tipped first over before a :56 half but could not reach Outlawgrabbingears as the pacesetter tripped three-quarters in 1:24 and scooted away through the stretch. Crackle N Burn angled off a helmet and dashed past Hf Jesse James to take second, finishing four-and-three-quarter lengths behind Outlawgrabbingears.

Criminal Record went wire to wire in the opening division as the 7-5 favourite.

Trainer-driver Kelly Hoerdt cleared command with Criminal Record from Whiplash Smile moving to a :28.3 opening quarter.

Trainer-driver Nate Sobey soon sent Trip Hammer off the cones from fifth and ventured forward into a :59.4 half before grabbing cover from Freddy Two Socks in the backstretch. Freddy Two Socks matched strides with the pacesetter passing three-quarters in 1:29.3 and struggled to slide past the leader while Trip Hammer fanned three wide.
