After showing good gate speed to lead, Thunder Dance relinquished the front to Rockn Brushgrove in the middle stages.
Saved for one last crack at them, Thunder Dance peeled off Rockn Brushgrove's back and while he was a tad erratic he made up the requisite ground to just get home by a half head.
Rockn Brushgrove finished a game second.
Bred and raced by the McDowell's Allied Express Transport, Thunder Dance is out of their stakes winning Armbro Operative mare Duets 1:56.2 - $119,851.
Thunder Dance's win tonight takes his earnings to $48,740.
