When the gates opened, Hot Hand went to the lead from his inside post, but was quickly joined by Breanna's Smile. They raced together up the backstretch and were joined by Signit through fractions of :24.06 and :48.18. Breanna's Smile took the lead into the second turn before Signit ranged up and appeared the winner in upper stretch. But Gang came on with a strong late move, but was all out to barely edge Signit, who came back on after Gang had gotten the advantage in deep stretch."He got to the front and kind of waited," Mawing said. "I said 'Let's go, buddy,' and it was over."Nik Goodwin, who rode Signit, thought his horse would win it.
"He handled the track very, very well, did everything I asked, and I had a good feeling in the stretch. I thought we were going to win it, but the other guy got me in the last jump." Gang returned $18, $7.20, and $4.20. Signit held second and paid $5.80 and $3.80. Breanna's Smile returned $4 to show.Scratched from the Woodlawn were Brush With Gold, Kicken Kris, Urban King, Prospect's Thunder, Il Barone, Hypnotist, and Silver Tree.(Chart, Equibase)
