A total of $40,000 in bonuses were awarded to the top three finishers, with the winning connections receiving $25,000.

Artistico, trained by Sylvain Pion for 4U Thoroughbred Racing Stable, was second in the point standings with 16 and Peace of Ekati accumulated 12 points to place third for trainer Ashlee Brnjas and Colebrook Farms.

The fourth leg of the series, which was scheduled for this weekend, was cancelled due to lack of entries, therefore concluding the series for 2020.
