Tarabilla Farms' Melatonin shocked the field in gate-to-wire fashion winning by a stunning 4 1/4 lengths at 16-1 odds. Grade 1 winner, 22-1 shot Hard Aces finished a good second in the field of nine with 7-5 favorite Effinex getting in for third. Imperative finished fourth, followed by Point Piper, Class Leader, 5-2 second choice Donworth who was a disappointing seventh, Cyrus Alexander, and General a Rod, to complete the order of finish.
