Glen DelRusso, Charles Dombeck and trainer-driver Bier own the seven-year-old Angus Hall-Super Sally gelding who now has earned $47,645 this year and $631,697 in his career. Lira Vita, driven by Corey Callahan, went a tough trip challenging the winner for much of the last half mile and finished second ending a three-race win streak. Nordic Venture closed well for Vince Copeland for third money. .

Yankee Fortysix and Ross Wolfenden came zooming from far back to overtake Charger (Ron Pierce) who had assumed the lead turning for home to score a 1:53.1 victory in the $10,000 Male pace. Bonnie Benson owns Yankee Fortysix, a consistent altered son of Artiscape-Kikipell winner of his fourth race and $114,630 in 2010. McCabe Hall (Brad Hanners) hustled down the lane to finish third.
