In a virtual match race, Chipshot and Vengeful Wildcat hooked up from the opening bell and posted splits of :23.44 and :46.26. Chipshot held a 1/2 length advantage through a half but Vengeful Wildcat kept on chugging away and got the job done by a neck under Carlos Marquez Jr.
Ben Perkins Jr. saddled the winner for New Farm. He completed his six furlong trip in 1:10.54 and paid $6.40.
Chipshot was two clear of Road Ready, who was follwed across the line by No Easy Answer, Philippe, Escort, Wicked Thunder, and Ghost Is Clear.
