Trainer Dylan Davis called upon the services of Tim Tetrick, and both trotter and driver responded over a sloppy racetrack. Jack Vernon allowed Home’n Dry to take the lead briefly before retaking the lead at the end of a :27.4 quarter. Tetrick was able to back off the half to :57.2 before facing a first-over challenge from In Secret through three-quarters in 1:25.2. Jack Vernon prevailed as the 1-2 favorite, winning handily by three-quarters of a length in 1:53.2.

Home’n Dry stayed on the rail to finish second; Majestic Marvel finished third.
