Dance Money, the frontrunner, and Lieutenant Kitty, the closer, broke from posts four and one, respectively. Dance Money was first out of the gate quickly cleared the field. Lieutenant Kitty trailed the field for the first half-mile and commenced her closing kick around the final turn. Dance Money dug in through the stretch while her cropmate came closer with every stride. At the line, Dance Money’s nose was just a little longer in a fine effort for both runners.
