Race Comments: SUMMER SQUALL, never far back while well in hand, moved fast along the inside approaching the stretch, continued along the inside to make his bid entering the stretch, came out slightly while moving away from UNBRIDLED leaving the furlong grounds and drew clear under brisk urging. UNBRIDLED, unhurried while outrun early, raced widest into the backstretch, commenced to rally approaching the far turn, continued his bid from the outside entering the stretch, dueled with SUMMER SQUALL to the final furlong and bested the others. MISTER FRISKY raced in closest attendance to FIGHTING NOTION just outside that rival. Remained a factor until near the stretch and tired. MUSIC PROSPECTOR moved within striking along the inside at the far turn but lacked a late response while continuing to save ground. FIGHTING NOTION quickly   sprinted clear, raced slightly out from the rail while making the pace held on well to the upper stretch and gave way. LAND RUSH, off slowly, swung out bothering BARON DE VAUX while looking for room midway along the backstretch and failed to reach serious contention. KENTUCKY JAZZ, allowed to follow the early leaders, remained a factor until near the stretch and tired badly. BARON DE VAUX, always outrun, was forced out by LAND RUSH midway along the backstretch. J.R.'S HORIZON tired.
