Torrin Hanover was looped from the gate but persevered on the outside, crossing over near the quarter. Once Hunter Myers gave him that relaxing second panel, the 6-year-old Well Said-Transference gelding easily held off the late challenge of Puzzling and downed him by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:51.1. Missile J completed the ticket.

Paul Corey trains Torrin Hanover, who now boasts a career bankroll of $315,709, for Kenneth Ashba.

Dave Palone piloted four winners, including a pair for trainer Justin Pirillo, on the 11-race card.
