Jack Vernon, the four to five race favorite, set fractions of 27.3 56.2.   Northern Express, angled off the rail from 3rd and trotted 1st up past the half.  The three quarters were reached in 1:24.3. A 28.1 third quarter.  

Jack Vernon, at the top of the stretch, inched away from a frustrated Northern Express and won by three quarters of a length in 1:52.3.

Northern Express finished a gallant second and was driven by Russell Foster.  His father Arty Foster Jr. is the trainer.
