The eight-year-old son of Kadabra-Earl Of My Dreams shot to the top from Post 2 and sliced out panels of :28., :57.2 and 1:26.4 before using a :30.4 closing quarter to win by a quarter of a length over Lexis D J in 1:57.3. Third prize was earned by Cimeronken.

Later on the card it was BWT Taj going gate-to-wire in the $7,000 Preferred 3 for trotters for the tandem of driver Travis Henry and trainer Carmen Auciello. The gelding charged to the lead from Post 3 and never looked back through fractions of :28, :57.3 and 1:26.3. He used a :30.1 final frame to win by a length over Chuckalo Caden in 1:56.4. Falcor Bluestone was third.
Sent off as the even-money favourite, the four-year-old son of Broadway Hall-BWT Majia won as he pleased for Wheelhouse Racing Stable of Mississauga, Ontario. It was the seventh win of the year for the nine-time winner who pushed his lifetime earnings over $113,000.
