Ice Folly was however not the only winner for owner Chris Jagdeo, since Va-Va-Voom won race number one, the G and Lower for a first prize of $90 000 while Fire Power and Materazzi finished second in the F1 and Lower and the Two-year-olds Open, respectively. To this extent, R. Jagdeo from the Jagdeo stables copped the champion trainer trophy donated by the children of the late Mr and Mrs Burden Bactawar.

Paul Dev who rode Ice Folly, Fire Power and Va-Va-Voom emerged as the champion jockey to cop the Trophy Stall spoil while Kumar Singh received the most improved jockey trophy donated by Dave Chickerie from New York.

In the first race, Lauralee in-flight from the Simms stable finished second while Go Geronimo crossed the finish line third.

In the second race, the L and Lower for a $70 000 first prize, Rock Star from the Dallo Stable galloped to victory followed by Perfect Drift and Brown Boy. The three-year-olds one mile race, for $110 000 and the Eric Lewis memorial trophy saw Starlight from the Ashram stables finished ahead of Dust Dancer and Miami Vice respectively.

In the F1 and Lower sprint race over five furlong, for a first prize of $110 000 it was Getting Something from the Simms stables that finished first, followed by Fire Power and Brave Heart. The Samaroo stables earned $75 000 when horse McGiver romped to victory in the seven furlongs, J and Lower race; Brown Boy and Rock Star finished second and third respectively.

Little Panie from the Mohan stables continued to impress in the two-year-old Open, winning against Materazzi and Third Prospector while in the final race of the day, the I and Lower, over a distance of six furlongs for a first prize of $80 000, Shue Seumi from the Crawford stables claim victory against So Fire and McGiver.
