What Hall of Fame announcer Roger Huston had to say:
With 26,400 British Pounds on the line a field of nine saw Grant Cullen send Eternal Lad to the front while the heavy favorite Louisiana driven by Gordon Gilvear got away 4th. Gilvear made his move with Louisiana at the 3/8ths pole to go head and head past the half. Gilvear seemed to be biding his time on the outside till they straightened out on the backside. From that point on the winner was never in doubt as Louisiana opened up by four at the three quarters and driver Gordon Gilvear never looked back winning by 13 lengths in a Track Record 1:59.20. Whirlwind White with William Greenhorn Jr came on to be second while Yvonne Hanover and Rocker Laidler finished third. Louisiana is owned by Steven Gilvear and trained by John Gilvear. It was a dominating performance by the filly by Sweet Lou out of The Player Hanover.
