Magnum Moon paid $3.60, $2.80 and $2.40. Combatant and Solomini tried to join the fight with three- and four-wide moves, respectively, but Magnum Moon made all those challenges futile ones as he reached the stretch.

Solomini finished a close third. "But Luis [Saez] gave him a masterful ride", Robert Low said.
