War Admiral Wins!

Start good and slow. Won easily; second and third driving. WAR ADMIRAL, fractious at post, was away fast, was taken under restraint after racing quarter-mile, set the pace, easily to the final half-mile, increased his advantage gradually on the stretch turn and won in hand. POMPOON, forced wide throughout, was reserved off the pace, offered good response when called upon. REAPING REWARD, in close quarters early, tired. SCENESHIFTER, jostled about on the first turn and eased back in several futile attempts to get racing room between horses, lost much ground on the final turn, then closed well in a splendid effort. HEELFLY had to be taken back slightly on the first turn as FAIRY HILL came over, tired in the stretch. DELLOR lost ground much of the race. BURNING STAR could not get up. COURT SCANDAL tired. CLODION was in close quarters on the inside of the back stretch. FAIRY HILL had speed but was through after a mile. MILITARY was far back throughout. FENCING quit. BILLIONAIRE was through early.
