He used a :29.3 second quarter to hit the half in :56.4. Tempster Hanover (Justin Huckabone) came first-over and got to within half a length as Brookdale Bruiser hit three-quarters in 1:24.4.

Brookdale Bruiser, who is owned by the J P Stables and trained by MacDonald, made the turn for home and breezed to an easy win in 1:53.1. Tempster Hanover was second best. Bay Rum (Howard Parker) finished third.
