One race later, another Stonehedge found success when the 3/5 favorite Breeze On By held sway over a tough Gatsby to win the $100,000 FTBOA Florida Sire Dr. Fager Stakes (the male counterpart to the earlier event).

Under Emisael Jaramillo as he broke from post 2, Breeze On By set opening fractions of :22.37 and :45.68 while Gatsby hounded him in the far turn. The two distanced themselves from the pack and knocked heads in the stretch, but Gatsby drifted out midway home, letting Breeze On By pull ahead late to win by 1 length in a final time of 1:10.85 for the 6-furlong sloppy sprint.
