Driven by Chicago driving legend Dave Magee, the son ofsat fourth throughout the mile before making his move to the front at three quarters.
From there, the end result was never in doubt at Pujols powered away from rivals by 3 ¼ lengths.
Pujols was coming off a third place finish in the $300,000 Orange And Blue Final at Balmoral and was third earlier this summer in the final of the Woodrow Wilson at the Meadowlands.
