The undercard feature was the $50,000 final of the Snowshoe Pacing Series for 3 and 4 year old colts and geldings, also contested at 1 mile. Modern Legend was sent off as the 3-4 choice off a 4 race winning streak including his heats of the first two legs of this series as well as the Autumn Stakes. In to challenge him included 3-1 second choice Big League, winner of his heat of the first leg, but 6th in the second leg of the series, and 7-2 third choice Cobalt Man, winner of 3 straight including both of his heats.

Driver Keith Oliver sent 43-1 Pisti to the lead first time by byt Modern Legend soon assumed the lead through an opening quarter in 26 3/5. Kept to task by regular driver Jack Moiseyev, he clicked off fractions of 55 2/5 and 1:24 3/5 while 1 3/4 lengths in front. Entering the stretch, Modern Legend powered away from the field, finishing 4 lengths in front of late-running 57-1 Warrawee Nonsuch in 1:52 2/5. It was another 1/4 length back to Big League third.
