The second race took off right as the rain poured but that did not distract Impromptu, the 5-year old gelding rom Kentucky that beat out favorite Diaz and Foxhall Drive in a 1:47.98 clocked in finish.
The race was for 1 1/8 miles on the turf for four-year olds and up. The race had a total purse of $22,500.
The final odds for Impromptu were 10-1, an increase since the morning-line odds of 15-1. He finished 3/4 lengths ahead of Foxhall Drive, he angle out in the upper stretch that allowed him to separate himself and closed willingly. The favorite Diaz was off a bit slow, raced off the pace move up outside on the far turn but did not have enough to catch up.
