STELLARR dueled for the lead while two wide on the far turn then drew clear in late stretch and was kept to a drive. LAH DEE DAH dueled for the lead from the inside, was hard used then weakened in late stretch while showing a game effort. FAVORITT was unhurried early then rallied three wide on the far turn but was no threat to the top two while best of the rest. AMAZING PROOF saved ground while inside and stalking the early leader's then faltered on the far turn. AF SIRPASS was settled then made a mild bid on the inside on the far turn and was no threat. TT NORDIC was no threat. SIR SMITH was through after a half and stopped. HEAVY was no factor. TOMOKA JACK was outrun. TT TIGER was outrun. KALMAR was between horses then clipped heels with TT TIGER and stumbled losing his rider. A steward's inquiry was held concerning the incident on the first turn. After reviewing the film's, there was no change to the order of finish.

Stellar is owned by Dianne Waldron and trained by Phil Saxer.
