Drawing the 5 gate, driver Sam Widger initially tried to ease the son of Sunshine Beach back but was caught wide and soon made a strong burst of sprint to make his way to the top end of the field. Passing the half in 55.1, the Jeff Cullipher trained runner then handed up the lead to take a trail for the remainder of the journey.
Turning into the long straight of Hoosier Park, Sonny Weaver N was kept in a pocket for a decent while before being steered towards the inside when the sprint lane became available and zoomed through to grab the lead. Then winning the race in a solid time of 1:49.3.
