The Saturday night card was definitely stacked with talent, especially the $17,500 Open Pace. With a full field of ten going to post and their combined earnings were in the excess of $3 million.

Twilight Bonfire prevailed in 1:50.2 for trainer Rich Gillock and driver, Tony Hall. Twilight Bonfire got away fourth, but didn't sit there for long. Hall pulled on the right line just passed the quarter, paced in 26.2. After clearing just passed the half mile marker in 55.4, the sprint was on to the wire. Twilight Bonfire paced strong to the wire, holding off a late rally from Beach Memories and Carol's Comet completing the trifecta.

The track was fast on Saturday night. The first nine races were all paced under1:53. It was until the last 3 races when the timer hit 1:53.
Drivers, Chris Page and Josh Sutton scored hat tricks on the card. While driver, Tony Hall had a double.
