Start poor. Won driving; second easily. Jockey Booker waited with JUDGE HIMES until in the last quarter before making a move, came through on the inside at the turn into the homestretch, caught EARLY tiring and, after a sharp struggle, was going away at the finish.

WOODLAKE quit badly after going a good half-mile. TREACY was never a contender.
