Burgoo King Wins!

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.
