The $100,000 Cam Fella Stakes for 4 and 5 year olds, caps off a 3-race series that kicked off on February 25. A full field of 10 contested this 1 mile trip around 2 turns of the 7/8 mile stonedust oval at Woodbine, with Modern Legend sent off as the 1-10 choice, off a 6 race win streak including the first two legs of this series and a sweep of all three legs of the Snowshoe Series. In to challenge him included 9-1 second choice Leafs and Wings, second and fourth in the first two legs of the series, and 10-1 third choice Audreys Dream, third in the first two legs of this series after winning an allowance on February 18.

Driver Billy Davis Jr. sent 53-1 Arsenal to the lead first time past the stands through an opening 1/8 in 12 4/5 and 1/4 in 26 3/5, while stalked by 23-1 Sonic Dancer and favorite Modern Legend. Down the backstretch, Sonic Dancer broke stride and dropped to last, briefly causing Modern Legend to check, but he regained his stride quickly and charged up to take over the lead through 1/2 in 1:23. Modern Legend led into the lane, getting 3/4 in 1:23, and drew off to win by 5 1/4 lengths over late-running Leafs and Wings in 1:50 4/5. It was another 1/4 length back to 40-1 Mach Wheel third.
