The last stakes race on Saturday was the $400,000 Jamaica Handicap (G1) for 3-year-olds going 1 1/8 miles over the inner turf course. Dullahan was sent off as the 8-5 favorie in the field of 7, exiting his Pacific Classic (G1) win at Del Mar. In to challenge him included 5-2 second choice Summer Front, third in the Secretariat (G1) last out, and 3-1 third choice Cogito, off a second place finish in the Prix Eugene Adam - Grand Prix de Maisons-Laffitte (G2) in France.

Jockey Eddie Castro sent 24-1 King Kreesa to a clear lead first time past the stands and he set fractions of 25.89, 52.29 over the good course while stalked by 4-1 fourth choice Howe Great and 28-1 King David. King Kreesa continued to lead to mid-stretch through 1 mile in 1:41.35, but King David closed in the final furlong to win by 1/2 a length in 1:52.91. It was another 3/4 length back to Summer Front third, while favorite Dullahan checked in fifth.
