Rock This Way challenged from first over starting at the half and pressured the pacesetter a half-length from the lead turning into the stretch. Travis Henry then sent the Carmen Auciello trainee into the passing lane and Imsporty kicked to a one-and-a-quarter length score over Breavercreek Artist with Rock This Way third.
