Miss Versatility leg to Emoticon Hanover
The two-time Breeders Crown champion and driver Daniel Dube got away second in a compact field of five and made a second-quarter circle to the lead from the two-hole.

Draw set for $300,000 Rooney final
The $300,000 event, for 3-year-old colts and geldings, goes as Saturday night’s (May 25) 10th race, with the dozen-race card offering its usual first post of 6:50 p.m.
Air Force Hanover, despite going the distance this past Saturday in 1:52.4, did not overly impress his trainer.
“He wasn’t as good as I wanted him to be,” Brian Brown said. “He did the same thing (2017 Rooney and Messenger winner) Downbytheseaside did when he was here.
“He’d open up a lead and start waiting for someone, and (Air Forc... more...

A four-horse charge led the field into the first turn, with Dorsoduro Hanover yielding position from post one to Jimmy Freight while Done Well hustled towards the lead and Rockin Speed took back for a pocket.
