Veteran professional, Jimmy Torano, piloted Ilan Feder’s gelding, Glasgow De Muze, to the win in a time of 40.203 seconds, narrowly beating another favorite, Aaron Vale, on his mount Major who crossed the timers with a speedy 41.557. Torano took home the prestigious grand prix win as well as the Envisian Leading Rider Award.
