82-1 longest shot Road Agent went to the lead first time by and he set fractions of 23.13, 47.57, and 1:13.40 over the firm course, while stalked by 38-1 Really Sharp. Entering the stretch, Road Agent tired badly allowing Really Sharp to inherit the lead. Balance the Books, last early, closed with a rush and was forced to alter course when Really Sharp bore out, but still prevailed by a nose in 1:45.15. It was another 1 1/2 lengths back to Brown Almighty third, and 2 more to Sonofasamurai fourth. After a stewards' inquiry, Really Sharp was disqualified from second to sixth for interference, moving Brown Almighty to second and Sonofasamurai to third.
