Away alertly from assigned post position No. 6, Always at My Place worked around Doctor Butch (Jason Bartlett), making the lead before a 27.1 opening quarter-mile. He then pilfered a 29-second next subsection (56.1 intermission), which would serve him well.

While this was transpiring, 3-10 choice Evenin' of Pleasure (Joe Bongiorno) had slipped in fourth from his remanded outside seven-hole. He was then second-over behind Robbie Burns N (Greg Merton) Unfortunately for the people's preference, that tow didn't help and Evenin' of Pleasure was three-deep into a 26.4 third quarter (1:23).

All the while, Always at My Place owned a length-and-quarter lead into the lane. Doctor Butch slipped off the cones, Pacing Major N (Jordan Stratton) advanced inside and Evenin' of Pleasure was trying to sustain his bid.

He couldn't. In fact, no one could as Always at My Place prevailed by three-quarters of a length in 1:50.3, matching his season's-best effort. Doctor Butch was second and Pacing Major N third, with Evenin' of Pleasure and Barimah A (Brent Holland) settling for the minors.

For second choice Always at My Place, a 7-year-old Always a Virgin gelding co-owned by Ron Burke, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura, it was her fifth win 42nd career in 17 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $155, the triple returned $489 and the superfecta paid $2,661.
