Northern Dancer Wins!

NORTHERN DANCER, in good order to gain a contending position along the inside, continued to save ground while under restraint, moved up steadily after six furlongs, but was forced to come out midway of the second turn, responded to gain command a quarter out and prevailed under strong left-handed whipping. HILL RISE, unhurried, was bumped twice through the stretch run the first time, continued along the outside thereafter to commence a rally at the half-mile ground, lost additional ground in a wide spread leaving the backstretch, rallied to strong handling on entering the stretch and was slowly getting to the winner. THE SCOUNDREL broke in stride, swerved out to bump with HILL RISE in the urn to the initial turn, continued in a forward position to gain command between calls on the second turn and weakened gradually through the closing drive. ROMAN BROTHER, allowed to settle in stride, commenced to advance along the inner railing after seven furlongs and finished strongly even though in slightly close quarters. QUADRANGLE, brushed and squeezed back at the start, wanted for racing room entering the first turn, continued well to the top of the stretch were he lacked a closing rally. MR. BRICK broke alertly but sharply to the outside brushing with QUADRANGLE, continued to make the pace under good rating and gave way suddenly after going a mile. MR. MOONLIGHT swerved to the outside for no apparent reason nearing the half-mile ground and could not threaten thereafter. DANDY K. was outrun, as was ISHKOODAH. WIL RAD was through early. ROYAL SHUCK showed speed for three-quarters and stopped badly.
