Kinsale King jumped out of the stalls very quickly and raced in the centre of the track. Robert Fradd made the job of the Singaporean representative Rocket Man very difficult and he was always looking for room until he put him into the clear in the final stages but it was too late. The American sprinter touched the wire and walked away with trophy as Rocket Man had to satisfy with the consolation second place prize.
