Whirlaway Wins!

Start good and slow. Won easily; second and third driving. WHIRLAWAY, eased back when blocked in the first eighth and taken to the inside approaching the first turn, started up after reaching the final half-mile, was taken between horses on the final turn, responded with much energy to take command with a rush and, continuing with much power, drew out fast in the final eighth. STARETOR, away slowly, made his move gradually, drifted out slightly before straightening up in the stretch and held on well in the final drive. MARKET WISE, also well back early, rallied after reaching the last five-sixteenths and finished with courage. PORTER'S CAP, a strong factor from the start, tired after reaching the last three-sixteenths. LITTLE BEANS races well from a very sluggish beginning, then closed courageously to pass tired horses in the stretch. DISPOSE took command easily, was under pressure after three-quarters and held on fairly well to the closing three-sixteenths, where he faltered badly. BLUE PAIR quit after showing speed for a mile. OUR BOOTS failed to keep up after reaching the last half mile. ROBERT MORRIS dropped out of contention after a half mile.
