The main event was for Three-year-old horses rated 60-45 over 1,100 metres on the main track.
Punters made the Harold Chadee trained Mafia Man the 8-5 favourite to get back on the winning trail but he was de-railed.
When the starter sent the eight-horse field off the John O'Brien trained Blue Bayou was first to show, he led from Sunset Cloud with Reggae Rhythm close up along with City of Gold, Mafia Man and King Ronan, while Wild Shuffle and Heat of the Moment were contented to track the pace.
At the far turn, Sunset Cloud stromed into the lead from Blue Bayou as Reggae Rhythm moved closer to the leaders in third with Mafia Man and Wild Shuffle and Heat of the Moment improving their positions.
At the corner Sunset Cloud and Nicholas Patrick still held sway but Ronald Ali was about to let the 8/1 shot Reggae Rhythm go as Blue Bayou came under pressure as Wild Shuffle began his run at the leaders.
Inside the final 200 metres, Ali drove the Shivam Maharaj owned thoroughbred to the line to ensure victory by half a length from a determined Sunset Cloud. Wild Shuffle ran on well for third 1 Â½ lengths back with Heat of The Moment doing his best work late to secure fourth spot.
The winners time was a good 1:05.44.
Riding honours for the day went to Ronald Ali who rode two winners in Wall Street and Reggae Rhythm.
Training honours fell to Lester Alexis who also saddled two winners.
Racing continues on the Republic Day holiday on September 25.
