Broadies Song - last approaching the three-quarters - moved four-wide around the last turn and pulled away to victory in 1:53 to win the top conditioned pace of the day. It was the first start since last November for the Camluck-Hawaiian Dancer gelding driven by Chris Page for trainer Josh Green and owners Kathleen Wyatt, Dorothy Parker and J,J&M Stable. Caviart Tyler (Jonathan Roberts) finished second. Woodstock Hanover was scratched.

After five straight second-place finishes, Art Brewer's Make It Brief (George Dennis) ended the streak with a 1:55.3 win in a Delaware $7,500 Claiming pace.
