Racing for the second time this year, Sudden Flight was with the leaders as the 10 competing horses were sent on their way by the starter.

Quickly tacking across from the seven draw to the preferred outside rail, Sudden Flight was with the leaders coming onto the main track with Jahsendblessings (Linton Steadman) the only substantial rival.

Over the last furlong and a half, Sudden Flight quickened even more leaving Jahsendblessings behind by 1 13/4 lengths when the winning post arrived. Third was Curlin’s Kawartha (Robert Halledeen).

The winning time was a good 1:00.3.
