Trained by Phil Oliver, Closing Range set the pace with Zucchini Flower close behind as she covered the mile and one eighth over firm turf in 1:49.84. The winner returned $11.40, $5.40 and $2.60 and topped the $55.40 exacta. Zucchini Flower paid $5.40 and $2.20 and finished one-half length in front of Dancing Solo, the 1-2 favorite in the field of six 3-year-old fillies, who paid $2.10 to show.
