Race favorite Mononchromatic starting from outside post 8 raced on the outside, with Corey Callahan, for most of the mile and had to settle for third.

A 15-1 shot, Make Magic won a photo finish 1:53.4 besting three others at the wire in a $14,500 4&5-Year-Old Mares Winners-Over pace. Trace Tetrick was at the controls of the Western Ideal-Little Miss K four-year-old. It was Make Magic's first win of the season. She is owned by Tom Kemp and trained by Jim King. Winbak Speedi (Allan Davis) led from the start until the final stride. Beechwood Diana (Ross Wolfenden) edged Grandview Hanover (George Dennis) for show money.
