Posttime favorite Okey Dokey Road put in a game effort on the outside to finish a neck back in third.

Saddled by trainer Nick Lowe, Cm One Ina Bluemoon completed the 350 yards in :17.702 seconds, a 104 speed index over the wet fast racecourse.

Jose Antonio Figueroa rode the Hayden Brothers Ranch Oregon-bred. The stakes-placed runner pocketed 3,150 for second to bring his total earnings to $38,268.

The loss snapped a three-race win streak for Okey Dokey Road who earned $1,575 for third. John Harris saddled the winner of the Portland Meadows Fall Derby in his last start for owner Sig Aumueller.
