Mellow Jenny paid $11.70 to win as 9-2 third choice.

Trainer Philippe Belanger and Talbot Trail Racing Stables co-own the homebred four-year-old daughter of Million Dollar Cam, who is now 12-for-22 this year with $51,435 earned in purses.

Three-year-old Armbro Deuce gelding Pass The Deuce and driver Jason Ryan won the $10,000 consolation over stablemate Twin B Turbo (Justin Turcotte) for trainer Paul Ruhl and owner James A Ruhl. He paid $7.50 to win as the favourite.
