Kim Caulder’s Kim’s Command ($6, Allan Davis) was an impressive 2:02.4 winner in the filly trotting final.

Jo Ann Looney-King’s Stealing Bases ($3.40, Victor Kirby) completed a sweep of the pacing filly division with a 1:57.4 triumph in her final for trainer Jim King Jr. The Roddy's Bags Again filly was under confident handling from Kirby, as she gained steadily with a first over charge and wore down leader Cinder’s Baby for her third straight win.

In the male pacing final, Mst Racing and George Teague’s Subban ($8.20, Montrell Teague) was a 1-3/4 length winner over Marvelous Winner and Syndergaard.
