The first division was race three on the card and was contested over a track listed as 'good.' Whiskersonkittens was the favourite at post time for driver Todd Warren.

Whiskersonkittens left for the lead and she reached the opening quarter in :28.4. On the backstretch, Whiskersonkittens maintained her lead while tracked by Bucklegirl Bobette through the half in :59.2. On the turn, Bucklegirl Bobette moved to head Whiskersonkittens through three-quarters in 1:28.2. In the lane, Whiskersonkittens fought back and opened up, drawing clear by four lengths on the wire as the 1-9 choice. Lexington Lady closed late for second while Narcissistic finished third. The final time for the mile was 1:55.2.

Owned by Ronald Knupp and trained by Kim Roth, Whiskersonkittens returned $2.20, $2.10, and $2.10. Lexington Lady paid $4.20 and $3.20 while Narcissistic paid $4.20 to show.
