Great Britain's Jason Watson opened his account for the weekend, courtesy of #4 Iditarod Trail bouncing back from his under-par showing in his last start and scoring his second win of his debut season.

This Gilbert Rousset-trained horse followed in the box-seat position, before showing superior speed in the home straight, sailing away to a comfortable win.

#5 Charleston Hero (Manuel Martinez) was the best of the rest, while #9 Consul Of War (Nishal Teeha) and #8 Inauguration (Randall Simons) were 3rd and 4th respectively.
