Backstreet Shadow got away third for Tetrick while Key Advisor and San Domino A battled to the quarter pole in :27.1. Key Advisor controlled the pace to the half in :55.4 before coming under fierce pressure from a first over Backstreet Shadow. They zipped right along to the three-quarter pole in 1:22.4 before Backstreet Shadow used a :27.3 closing panel to win by 1-1/4 lengths over San Domino A in 1:50.3. Wiggle It Jiggleit was third.
