As the field hit the top of the stretch, Beckwith swung Thebandfromboston ($16.20) to the outside, and a :30 last quarter-mile put the winner a neck in front of second place finisher Fancy Foxy (Jim McNeight) at the finish line. Starbux Eden (John Cummings, Jr.) came in third.The $4,250 share of the winning purse put Thebandfromboston’s seasons earning $10,160, and $169,900 lifetime.
