Dominion Beach with driver Marcus Johansson moved to take the lead from Inukchuck Chuck just past the half-mile mark, to win in 1:57.3. Inukchuck Chuck finished second while Heal The World came in third. This marks win number six with earnings over $170,000 lifetime for the Nancy Johansson trainee.

Andy Miller sent Southwind Prius to the front from postposition three only to relinquish the lead at the head of the stretch eventually finishing third. Bongiorno guided Southwind Woody around some road trouble to win in 1:59.1 holding off a late surge from Romancing Rachel.
