Kicking off the stakes action on Whitney day was the $70,000 A In Sociology Stakes for 3-year-olds at 1 mile on the inner turf course. Carnera stalked the early pace of 2-1 second choice Noble Deeds, then came out wide on the far turn, closing well through the stretch to win by a length over 6-1 Pure Incentive in 1:35.59 over the firm course. It was another 1 1/2 lengths back to 6-5 favorite Yankee Master in third. Carnera's record improves to 3 wins in 9 starts with earnings of $129,066. Winning trainer Kiaran McLaughlin would go on to win the Whitney Handicap 2 races later with Invasor. Because of the late scratch of entrymate Changing Weather, the winner ran for purse money only.
