The winner, trained by Jason Servis and ridden by Elvis Trujillo, raced the six furlongs in 1:09 2/5 and paid $10.40 and $4.20 as third choice in a field of four older horses.
This was the first win of the year in five starts for Our Honor, a 4-year-old colt by Double Honor. It was his third lifetime win in four starts at Monmouth Park, where he won on both dirt and turf last season.
Black Jack Ruler jumped out to the lead for Chuck Lopez and raced through a quarter in :22 1/5 and a half-mile in :44 4/5. Our Honor, unhurried early while last after breaking from the inside post, moved to the outside rounding the turn. In the stretch, he closed resolutely down the center of the track and was along in time.
