Driver Mike MacNeill got away sixth with the eight-year-old Authentique P V mare in a :28 second quarter, then moved third over through a half in :58.4. MacNeill then put the gas pedal down as he tipped three wide in the 1:30.1 third quarter, then cleared to win by two lengths in 2:01 over Odee Tuff and Shawland Y Two K.

Justi P V is owned and trained by Chantell Robertson of Chelmsford, Ont. The win was his third in 20 outings this year and 28th of his career pushing his bankroll to $356,541.
