The $250,000 Remsen Stakes (G2) featured a field of 10 two-year-olds (9 betting interests) going 1 1/8 miles on the main track. The two-horse Repole Stable entry of Futurity (G2) winner Overanalyze and Champagne (G1) fifth place finisher Micromanage was sent off as the 9-5 favorite over 5-2 second choice Delhomme, a maiden winner last out, and 7-2 third choice Normandy Invasion, also off his maiden victory.

Jockey Javier Castellano sent Delhomme to the lead early and he set fractions of 23.99, 48.07, and 1:12.54 while pressed by Overanalyze the whole way. Delhomme continued to lead to the 1/8 pole, getting the mile in 1:37.45, but Overanalyze passed him at the 1/16 pole. Normandy Invasion, 9th early, put in a strong late rally but Overanalyze held him off in a photo finish in 1:50.13 It was just 3/4 length back to Delhomme third.
