Miller tipped Recent News three high and sprinted by the leader to win by a half a length in 1:52.2. The win was the fourth in seventeen seasonal outings for the 5-year old son of Riverboat King – Memorabilia for the ownership group of Curran Racing and Adam Micael and trainer Heidi Rohr. Western Trademark (Mike Simons) hung tough for second, while Sheer Brilliance (Corey Braden) was third.
