Nomo Volo eschewed a potential early seat and needed the opening three-eighths to reach the point. Nevertheless, she prevailed in 1:55.2 for trainer/driver Jeff Gregory, defeating Windy Corner by 2-3/4 lengths. The other division went to Magical Beliefs, who quarter-poled to the front for David Miller and triumphed in 1:55.2.

2 Year Old Colt Trotters Brady Brown gave Stickler Hanover a ground-saving trip before the duo poured through the Lightning Lane to prevail in a career-best 1:57.2

Town Victor was away third but cleared to the front for Wilbur Yoder and triumphed handily in 1:58, matching his life mark.

Penance moved first over and cleared the leaders in the stretch in 1:58.4

2 Year Old Filly Trotters Sister Sledge and Caviart Guilia each extended her career unbeaten streak to four with Dave Palone piloting - and Sister Sledge matched the stake record to boot. Sorella took the third division of the stake known as the Judge Joe McGraw.
The Sweet Lou-One Ace Too Many filly Sweet Ace made her debut on the national scene an explosive one, taking her division in 1:50.4 - the fastest mile of the year by any 2-year-old, anywhere, on any size track, and a track record for her class at The Meadows.
The undefeated Adriano Hanover, who at 1-9 made a quarter-move to command and was never in doubt, winning by 2-¾ lengths in 1:53.1, missing his mark by a tick. Seeyou At Thebeach broke his maiden in 1:52.2.
