HARRY GILMORE broke in front, followed by BABCOCK, the PAT MALLOW COLT and ROBERT BRUCE. At the mile, HARRY GILMORE was still on top, with RUNNYMEDE moving on the outside to take third place. As they were well into the stretch, RUNNYMEDE took command, and looked like the winner until APOLLO started a cyclonic rush an eighth of a mile from home. APOLLO caught RUNNYMEDE a few jumps from the wire, and won by a half length.
