After a :55.2 intermission and a gapped-out octet, Nob Hill High (Eric Goodell) moved from fifth. He had a lot of work to do going toward the 1:23.4 three-quarters, with Electrofire taking a length-and-a-half lead into the lane.
However, tepid 5-2 choice Tobago Cays was waiting patiently, edging from the pocket and getting to the leader. He did, winning by a half-length in 1:53.2. Nob Hill High raced well to hold the bottom of the ticket--beaten 3-3/4 lengths
