Roll With Sparky (Roll With Joe) would control all the fractions :26.3, :56.1, 1:23.4, 1:51.3. Owned by Paul Tandimeyer, Lee Winters, and trainer Jim Graham, the 3 year-old filly would hold off a late charge by the favorite Love To Roll (John MacDonald) to win with ease. Love To Roll (Rocknroll Hanover) would settle for second best. Bye Bye Michelle (Chris Lems) finished third.

Roll With Sparky ($7.10) would have a career best time to get win number nine of the season and pick-up career victory number 11.

Leading driver John MacDonald would pick up wins number 156 and 157 at Vernon Downs this season. He would first win with ABC Crown Me Queen (ABC Garland) in 1:55.4, paying $4.00. Win two came with Strike A Chord (McArdle) taking the mile in 1:53.3. She would pay $2.90 for the victory.
