Rum With Me ridden by Dick Cardenas, his second on the day, won a four-year-old and upwards – non-winners of two call travelling six furlongs.
Trainer of Rum With Me, Patrick Lynch watched as Cardenas kept his mount in fourth place as Chitu Prince (Roger Hewitt) led the field at a merry clip.

Cardenas pushed Rum With Me and the four-year-old bay colt responded by surging by Chitu Prince, winning easily by 4 ¼ lengths.
Chitu Prince was second and Elitist third.
