The gelding held the lead through a :56.4 half and 1:25.3 three-quarters and continued to lead until deep in the lane when Corey Callahan took the passing lane with Elysium Lindy and got up by a neck in 1:53.3. Theresademoninme (Jonathan Roberts) closed strongly to nab third place in the field of eight.

The previous race, a $13,000 winners-over trot, found Soda Pump used several times during a 1:53.1 mile.

Crazshana (Allan Davis) also came on to edge Tough Mac for place.

Stafford and Filled Donut scored an impressive 1:54 triumph in a $13,500 trot. L Dees Yoyo Ma (Steve Nason) was a fast-finishing second with Torkil (Montrell Teague) the third-place finisher. Ken Wood, Bill Dittmar, Steve Iaquinta, and Lou Walls own the Andover Hall-Miss Gertrude gelding who now has three wins, a second, and a third in five races this year.
