Trippi Sprinkle tracked the pace, took over mid-way on the turn, battled foe through the lane, headed late, battled back and prevailed.  Notorious Crown tracked the early pace, battled through the lane, short lead, succumbed to foe.  Power Silver rated, late effort while no threat to the top pair.  Princess Of Lord no speed, passed tiring rivals.  Jessica Alba saved ground, no factor.  Always Grey sent from the gate, set the pace to mid-way on the far turn, folded.
