SMART COVER outrun early, made a four wide run after five furlongs, bumped with the runner up several times in upper stretch when attempting to keep that one behind rivals, was forced out a bit then after bumping with that again, proved narrowly best. MYGALSAL close up inside, was boxed in around the second turn, was blocked leaving the second turn after angling out a bit, steadied in upper stretch when bumped and kept behind the leaders, bulled through inside the final furlong to challenge but missed. STONECRUSHER within striking distance three wide, angled out four wide on the second turn, gained a
short lead approaching the stretch, battled into the final furlong and weakened. BROADWAY MISSILE set a pressured pace, responded when displaced leaving the second turn, came again to gain a short lead with a furlong to go but weakened late. KEENELAND KITIEN reserved for a half, moved out four wide on the second turn and had nothing left late. NORTHERN EMPIRE outrun early, raced five wide on the second turn and was no factor. KODY WITH A K forced the pace between rivals, steadied nearing the stretch when in tight then tired. VICTORY COLORS prompted the pace three wide, held on well for six furlongs and gave way.
