|Dream Out Loud N was a 1:53.3 winner.|
Assigned post position No. 2, he worked out a pocket trip behind 2-5 choice Bettor's Edge. That one threw down intervals of :28.1, :57.2 and 1:25.2. All the while, he was pestered by a fumbly-gaited, but persistent longshot Eddie Sweat (Jason Bartlett).
Bettor's Edge eventually dismissed that one, taking a length lead into the lane. However, Dream Out Loud N was just minding his business. He angled out and easily went by, the margin a couple of lengths in 1:53.3. Bettor's Edge held second, with Dallenbach Hanover (Brian Sears), Lumberjack Willie (Jordan Stratton) and Sapphire City (Eric Carlson) settling for the remainder.
Dream Out Loud N, a 7-year-old Down Under Bettor's Delight gelding owned by Joe Muscara and trained by Darren Cassar, returned $18 (third choice) for a season-debuting victory. The exacta paid $38.20, with the triple returning $106.50.
