Leaving from post 5, Tobins Rebel ripped to a four-length lead moving to the first quarter in :29.2 with Johnnie Jack giving chase from second. Tobins Rebel continued on an open lead by a :58.3 half and motored to three-quarters in 1:27.4 five lengths better than Johnnie Jack. However the field narrowed on Tobins Rebel into the stretch with Windemere Ryan closing quickest but settling for second, one-and-a-quarter lengths behind the winner. Johnnie Jack finished third but was disqualified to fourth for interference at the top of the stretch, placing Nothing To Prove third.

Rest Assured shot from the pocket into the final turn and wore down pacesetter Eastcoast Invader to win the lone $1,500 ATSS “B” division in 2:05.2. Eastcoast Incader set a clip of :32, 1:03.3 and 1:35.3 before driver Adam Merner angled Rest Assured from second to match strides with the leader into the stretch.
