1st: #1 Force Of The Shark (Arindel/D. Davis): Broke in tandem with the three at the rear of the field.  Moved forward between runners to be 3rd going down the backside.  Tracked the leaders until midway on final bend.  Moved out another path for clear run.  Made the front with a sixteenth to go and was all out to hold runner-up at bay.

2nd: #3 Magz (Gdp Inc/J.C. Ferrer): Raced at the back of the field early before making an early four-wide move to 2nd rounding the first turn.  Took the lead from the two-path after four furlongs.  Held the lead until sixteenth pole and battled the winner through the wire.

3rd: #4 Jump The Line (Mb Stables/F. Prat): Away on the rail from the stalking flight.  Lost a couple positions to early movers entering the backstretch.  Rallied through the lane but couldn’t reach top pair.
