Kicking off the stakes action on Pacific Classic day was the $250,000 Pat O'Brien (G2) for older horses sprinting 7 furlongs. Coil, an allowance winner last out after a 9 month layoff, was sent off as the 3-2 favorite in the field of 6 over 8-5 second choice Camp Victory, winner of the Triple Bend Handicap (G1), and 5-2 third choice Capital Account, third in the Bing Crosby (G1) last out.

24-1 Don Tito battled for the lead with Coil down the backstretch through fractions of 23.78 and 46.81, while pressed by Camp Victory. On the turn, Don Tito tired and dropped to last, allowing Coil to inherit the lead through 3/4 in 1:10.02 but Capital Account, fifth early, closed 3 wide to win by 1/2 a length in 1:21.56. It was another length back to Camp Victory third.
