Once the dust settled, Rideout had After All Paul out and moving toward the lead, a position he secured just after the halfway marker in :57.3. From there, the Swan for All sophomore picked up the tempo, trotting home in :28.4 for the three and one-half length victory in 1:55.0. Swan Legacy and Dan Shetler moved up for second followed by Mr Wisconsin and John DeLong, who closed well from the back of the pack for third.
