*Race Notes: Start bad and slow. Won easily; second and third driving.

LAWRIN, saving much ground, responded willingly when called upon, came through on the inside when wearing down MENOW, opened up a commanding advantage approaching the final eighth, then bore out through the last sixteenth, but held DAUBER safe. The latter, badly outrun early, began to improve his position when racing wide on the stretch turn, continued near the middle of the track while closing with fine speed and was getting to the winner. CAN'T WAIT, rated under steady reserve for about three-quarters, outfinished MENOW in the last stride. The latter made a good pace under steady rating, swerved out on the stretch turn and tired under pressure thereafter. THE CHIEF ran an even race. FIGHTING FOX did not respond when urged and gave way badly after a mile. CO-SPORT was outrun. BULL LEA, away fast, could not hold a contending position and labored badly in the last half mile.

Race Notes*:  Start good. Won easily; second and third driving. BURGOO KING, away fast and well rated, followed the pace closely until reaching the final three-eighths, where he easily wore down ECONOMIC and won easily. ECONOMIC set the pace under good rating, was no match for the winner, but outlasted STEPENFETCHIT. The latter saved ground in the early stages, was under restraint until reaching the closing half-mile and rallied mildly when taken to the outside in the stretch and was wearing down ECONOMIC. BRANDON MINT moved up fast on the stretch turn and, despite lack of room, was going boldly in the final stages. OVER TIME held on stubbornly in a good performance. TICK ON, much used at the post and in close quarters most of the way, could not reach the leaders when clear and was under hard pressure in the final quarter. OUR FANCY had no mishaps. GALLANT SIR quit. ADOBE POST had a rough race. LIBERTY LIMITED fell badly lame and pulled up.
