Kicking off the stakes action on Gold Cup day was the $70,000 Star of Cozzene Stakes for 3-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles on the main track. The 2-horse entry of Our Dark Knight and Jackson Bend was sent off as the even-money favorite over 2-1 Stormy's Majesty and 6-1 Brother Bird.

The entrymates battled for the lead with Brother Bird in a tight bunch down the backstretch through fractions of 23.60, 47.84, and 1:12.12. Entering the stretch Jackson bend tired as Our Dark Knight continued to lead, but 8-1 Colizeo, 4th early, came out 4 wide for the drive to pass the pacesetters at the 3/16 pole, drawing off late to win by 3 lengths over late-running Stormy's Majesty in 1:43.05. It was another 3/4 lengths back to Our Dark Knight third.
