Zoraze would hang on for second with BJ Anthony (Mickey McNichol) would get the third spot.

Prairie Fortune ($3.80), who is owned by Laurie Puolin and trainer Mike Deters, would win for the seventh time this year and earned career win number 34.

Jim Taggart Jr. would pick up three driving wins on the night. First win was with Cool Breeze De Vie $3.90. Second victory came with J Black ($19.80) and the third win was with One Tough Nut ($5.20).
