Ponder Wins!

Start good from stall gate. Won driving; second and third the same. PONDER, away slowly, gradually worked his way forward while racing on the extreme outside, responded to brisk urging entering the stretch and, after wearing down the leaders, won, but had little left. CAPOT, forwardly placed from the start, went to the front when settled in the stretch, held on willingly, but was unable to withstand PONDER, although easily best of the others. PALESTINIAN, well ridden, saved ground to the stretch, then made a bold bid when set down in the drive, but faltered during the last sixteenth. OLD ROCKPORT, on the inside and never far back, could not get to the leaders when hard ridden through the stretch. HALT passed tired horses during last three-eighths. OLYMPIA made the pace until inside the stretch, then gave way. MODEL CADET moved up after going the first half mile, then tired. DUPLICATOR, on the outside throughout, never seriously threatened. JOHNS JOY, roughed at first turn and again nearing the upper turn, failed to rally when clear. KY. COLONEL was far back throughout. LEXTOWN had brief speed. JACKS TOWN was through early. WINE LIST could not keep up. SENECAS COIN was overmatched and pulled up hopelessly beaten.
