The race was highlighted by a photo-finish with 2-1 second choice Practical Joke prevailing over a couple of longshots - Royal Copy who was sent off at 15-1 odds and third place finisher Pretty Boy Flash who went to the post at 25-1 odds. 3-1 third choice Bitumen was fourth in the field of seven while Everybodyluvsrudy, Runaway Lute and 8-5 favorite Classic Empire completed the order of finish.
