In additional Bluegrass divisions for 2-year-old pacing colts, Shark Gesture rallied in the homestretch to win in 1:51.3, Rock N Roll Star scored in 1:51.3, and Perfect Union picked up his first career win in 1:52.1.

Western Search, driven by Ron Pierce, set the early pace, which included a first half in :54.4. Shark Gesture, who made his first career start on Aug. 12 at Pocono Downs, was fresh for the stretch drive and paced past Western Search, who faded to fifth.

Rock N Roll Star, a $22,000 yearling purchase, was raced off the pace by driver David Miller while Eckstrom and Armbro Deuce set the early pace. Western Cyclone looked like a winner at the top of the stretch when he kicked off cover, but Miller's mount had plenty of pace and racetrack left to score.
