7-1 shot Grasshopper settled in fourth for the first 6 furlongs under regular rider Robby Albarado, moved up to striking position at the top of the stretch but tired late, finishing third beaten 13 1/4 lengths. The Neil Howard trainee improved his record to 4 wins, 5 seconds, and 2 thirds in 13 starts, earning $760,352 for owner-breeders William S. Farish, Edward J. Hudson, and James A. Elkins.
