The four-year-old homebred son of Jereme's Jet is trained and co-owned by Geoff Howles of NY with Mary and Rich Howles. He was given an alert drive by Bouchard, who was able to work a second-over trip and then take command from Let's Rock Together before sprinting home to a half length victory.
Ru Ready To Rock was second with Let's Rock Together third. Island Jet went off at odds of nearly 4-1 and paid $9.90 to win
