Bearcatt Pounces on Congor Bay
Bear It's True and Heart of a King went for the early lead, with the whole pack going with them. The lone exception was Congor Bay (Speightstown), who wasn't far off.

They moved together for awhile, but Bearcatt pulled away for the win. Congor Bay did, however, take second.
