"Following the break, Avid Skier and local hopeful Jandemar eased their way to the front of the nine-horse field followed closely by Triesteís Honor and Pollardís Vision. Through an opening quarter in: 23:2 It was still the two long shots who were leading the pack. California Derby winner Triesteís Honor would quickly join the front-runners and make his presence felt as he put a nose in front with three-furlongs left to run. As the lead trio started the turn for home, a fast flying Pollardís Vision and an even faster Brass Hat were taking dead aim on the leaders. Brass Hat eventually would catch Pollardís Vision in mid-stretch and then go on to win the 70th running of the Grade 2 $350,000 Ohio Derby." BRASS HAT's record is now 7-2-4-0 with lifetime earnings of $317,650!
