Decidedly Wins!

Start good. DECIDEDLY, taken in hand at the start to be held in reserve for six furlongs, came to the outside thereafter to commence his bid, continued wide to engage the leader through the upper stretch, moved to the fore leaving the furlong marker and was under pressure to draw off. ROMAN LINE, steadied while maintaining a striking position from the outset, rallied from between horses in the late stages to gain command a furlong out but had little left to contain the belated bid of the winner. RIDAN allowed to settle through the opening quarter mile, moved with a rush along the outside thereafter to prompt the issue in the run down the backstretch, attempted to bear out rather badly on leaving the backstretch but continued gamely to midstretch where he faltered under extreme pressure. *SIR RIBOT, away in good order, appeared to run up onto horses' heels entering the first turn, came out thereafter and finished strongly. SUNRISE COUNTY, never far back, dueled vigorously for the lead to the final sixteenth where he gave way suddenly while under pressure. CRIMSON SATAN, bumped at start, rallied after six furlongs and finished full of run. GREEN HORNET turned in a good closing rally. ADMIRAL'S VOYAGE tired suddenly after vying for lead at top of the stretch. TOUCH BAR broke sharply to outside. LEE TOWN showed early speed but gave way suddenly. PREGO appeared to throw a stifle and was immediately pulled up. Scratched - Sir Gaylord, Donut King, Cicada. (*Foreign Bred)
