Gross sent Go Foin into the lead, which he increased as he went along. Doc Horn followed him to the stretch, where he dropped back to third, and it was apparent as soon as the stretch turn was reach that Go Foin would be an easy winner. The finish saw him two and a half lengths in front of Alleden, which in turn beat Doc Horn the same distance for second place. Kerry Girl, the other starter, was last.
