5-1 fourth choice Marchfield raced as many as 12 lengths off the pace early under regular rider Patrick Husbands, came off the rail 3-wide into the lane and closed with a rush to get second beaten just 1 3/4 lengths at the line. The Mark Casse trained son of A.P. Indy out of Red Ransom mare Pico Teneriffe improved his record to 6 wins, 8 seconds, and 0 thirds in 21 starts, earning $937,476 for owner-breeder Eugene Melnyk.
