Harry Von Knoblauch\'s Chivalrous N, trained by Peter Tritton, took the lead for Cole at the start and cut out all the winning fraction in a 1:53.1 triumph. Relentlessfirebolt (Vic Kirby) closed strongly along the passing lane to finish second. Full Of Elegance (Corey Callahan) stormed down the stretch to make the photo but was third.

Cole was also \"king\" in the $20,000 claiming pace, rolling Now That\'s Art three wide turning for home and zoomed past the leaders on the way to his fifth win in 1:54 to give Art Brewer, the second of an owner-trainer triple. Mr. Fit (Tim Curtin) came on for second in front of Riki Road N (Kevin Sizer) third.
Morgan picked up his second win taking Grinfrombeertobeer right to the front in a $14,000 pace, fighting off a mild challenge on the backstretch from Lucky Fox (Roger Plante) before pulling off for a lifetime-best 1:52.1 victory for owners Dylan Davis and Warren Racing Stable. Real Magician (Callahan) came on to finish second in front of Lucky Fox.
Morgan\'s other win came driving Mike Caslino\'s Walks On Water N back in the win column steering a 1:53.1 victory in a $30,000 claimer. The win was the sixth in the last seven starts for the In The Pocket gelding. Swingingwithashark (Tim Tetrick) was next. Bionicle N (Roberts) took show honors.
