Johnstown Wins!

Start bad and slow. Won easily; second and third driving. JOHNSTOWN swerved to the inside as he took command, made the pace for a mile, was lightly roused in the stretch and quickly increasing his advantage, won with speed in reserve. CHALLEDON was between horses in the early running and began to move up after reaching the last five-eighths. HEATHER BROOM dropped back when racing wide on the first turn, rallied after going seven-eighths and outfinished VISCOUNTY. The latter, away badly, was rushed into a contending position in the first three quarters and continued well to the final eighth before tiring. TECHNICIAN did not settle into good stride until reaching the back stretch where he showed a brief flash of speed but was soon out of contention. EL CHICO broke to the outside and was through after seven-eighths. T.M. DORSETT also quit after showing early speed. ON LOCATION was eased in the stretch. Scratched - Challenge, Xalapa Clown.
