Morvich Wins!

Start good and slow. Won easily; second and third driving. MORVICH ran as if he outclassed the others, was kept in the lead under hard restraint for the first mile and drew away in the stretch to win under a pull.

DEADLOCK raced well, but tired in the last quarter. MY PLAY ran well, but finished quite lame. STARTLE was one after going three-quarters. BUSY AMERICAN broke down in the first quarter. Scratched - Banker Brown.
