Jet Pilot Wins!

Start good from stall gate. Won driving; second and third the same. JET PILOT, alertly handled, assumed command at once, made the pace to the stretch under good rating and, responding readily when hard ridden in the drive, lasted to withstand PHALANX. The latter, away very sluggishly and outrun during the first half mile, worked his way forward steadily thereafter and, taken out for the stretch run, finished fast and was getting to the winner at the end. FAULTLESS, never far back and steadied along to the stretch, responded readily when set down in the drive, then closed strongly in a sharp effort. ON TRUST, forwardly placed from the beginning and in a good effort, failed to rally when roused for the drive and faltered near the finish. COSMIC BOMB a sharp factor early, engaged JET PILOT for five furlongs, then weakened. STAR REWARD make a good bid approaching the stretch, then gave way. BULLET PROOF went evenly and had no mishap. W.L. SICKLE was never prominent. STEPFATHER, away slowly, was never a serious factor. LIBERTY ROAD was far back the entire trip. RISKOLATER was never a serious factor. DOUBLE JAY had brief speed and pulled up sore. JETT-JETT unseated his river at the post, ran off a quarter and showed nothing in the running. Scratched - Balheim.
