Bold Venture Wins!

Start good and slow. Won driving; second and third same. BOLD VENTURE, in close quarters immediately after the start, began to improve his position fast on the outside after about three-eighths, took an easy lead approaching the final half-mile and, holding on with fine courage under strong handling, withstood BREVITY'S bid. The latter, probably best and knocked to his knees within a few strides after the start, had to race wide thereafter, closed resolutely and was wearing down the winner. INDIAN BROOM, blocked in the first quarter, raced to a contending position, made a bid entering the stretch, then weakened. BIEN JOLI was jostled about on first turn and did not threaten thereafter. HE DID had speed for a mile. THE FIGHTER began well but failed to stay after being bumped after three-quarters. GRAND SLAM showed speed for five-eighths. GRANVILLE unseated his rider when in close quarters shortly after start. Scratched - Banister, Dnieper, Seventh Heaven, Forest Play, Silas.
