This derby was dustiest of all. Some estimates had the dust 5 inches deep. FONSO broke in front and was never headed. After a quarter, it was FONSO, KIMBALL, BANCROFT and BOULEVARD with QUITO, which was left at the post, far back. QUITO moved into third position on the back stretch but had nothing left for the final drive. FONSO was a length in front of KIMBALL at the wire with BANCROFT three lengths back. A foul claim by the rider of KIMBALL against FONSO was not allowed.
