Egyptian Ra set early fractions of 25.02, 47.52, and 1:11.04 while being stalked by Able One and Sight Winner. Able One moved up to challenge at the 3/16 pole and the pair briefly battled for the lead before both tired. Good Ba Ba, who was near the back of the field in the early stages, came out wide for run at the top of the stretch and closed with a rush to take the lead at the 1/16 pole. Favorite Happy Zero put in a strong rally of his own from well back but Good Ba Ba held him off late by 1/2 a length to pull off the three-peat in 1:34.60 over the good course. It was just a head back to Fellowship third, while pacesetter Egyptian Ra was just another neck back in fourth.
