Tina Clark and Brian Clark's Automatic Dragon was a front end winner in the second division with a 1:52.2 score over River's Crest and Stay In Your Place. The Art Director gelding notched his sixth career win for trainer Bobby Clark.
In the overnight feature, the $17,500 Open Pace, Major Uptrend ($7.20, Tony Morgan) was an impressive 1:49.3 winner for owner Crissman Inc. and Niss Allen Inc. Trained by Tim Crissman, it was the fastest mile of the meet.
