WELL SPENT broke out then hit the gate and stumbled awkwardly, recovered to race just off the pace under restraint, drafted inside around the turn, was asked while cutting the corner into the stretch then hugged the fence while making a brave bid inside of three opponents at the three-sixteenths, was driven through under a strong-hand ride to take the lead into the final furlong, shook clear under two pops of a right-handed crop outside the sixteenth-pole then was placed back under a brisk hand-ride to the wire while best.

GOOD MEASURE moved in early, brushed with a foes while in the two path around the first turn, was reserved while saving ground, jostled with a foe into the second turn, continued to save ground under reserve, was roused on the final turn, moved to the two path outside the quarter-pole, chased into the final furlong, made a bid between horses into the final sixteenth, bumped with the runner-up late and got up to narrowly prevail.
