Paint Me Perry pressed on the outside in the first race going for a head advantage over A Black Zipper at the wire. Francisco Gonzalez conditions the PYC Paint Your Wagon colt out of the Mr Jess Perry mare Baby Perry, a daughter of champion Kool Kue Baby. He completed the 250 yards in :13.17.

The aforementioned A Black Zipper held on for the second fastest clocking of :13.19. Joe Thomas saddled the Count Corona gelding for owner Julia Contreras. Out of the Special Task mare Stayin On Task, A Black Zipper is a half brother to stakes winner Midnight In Moscow (by Stoli, $74,292). A Black Zipper was on the front early and put in a strong effort to finish second.

In the third race, Marys Coronitas was never threatened as she finished in hand for an easy half-length win for owner/trainer Jorge Mendoza. The Corona Cartel filly out of Inbetween Dances, by Runaway Winner, completed the 250 yards in :13.45.
