This week, MD Magic ($2.40) floated away from the gate in fifth from Post 5, as a host of others fired out for the front. Driver Dean Magee got MD Magic out and moving near the half-mile pole and he continued to advance, He dropped into the pocket behind Deweys Machine (driven by Steve Wiseman) around the final turn and powered by the leader in the stretch to draw clear for a two-length tally in 2:01.1.
