The six-year-old Doctor Brodsky gelding is trained and co-owned by James Jeffers of Deloraine, MB and Dennis Walsh of Delta, B.C.

Holland Fair also featured a $1,600 Open Pace for fillies and mares.

Alcars Xit (Marc Fillion) advanced on the post time favourite Valentine Hotspur (Cory Manning), gaining the lead after the 1:01.4 half. Posting a 1:33.3 third quarter, Alcars Xit held off Allamerican Orchid (Michel Rey) by three quarters of a length for the win in 2:05.4. P Ts Fancy (Darryl Mason) was third.
