Stay Thirsty   (in company with Uncle Mo), five furlongs in 1:01 4/5, with splits of :13, :25 2/5, :37 2/5, and :49 2/5. Galloped out six furlongs in 1:14 2/5 and seven furlongs in 1:28 1/5.

Uncle Mo   (in company with Stay Thirsty), five furlongs in 1:01 3/5, with splits of :12 4/5, :25 2/5, :37 1/5, :49 1/5. Galloped out six furlongs in 1:14 1/5 and seven furlongs in 1:28.
