THE CHEVALIER rushed to the front at the break but COL. ZEB WARD took over before the race had gone a quarter. GALLIFET, coupled with ALEXANDRIA as the even money choice, went to the front on the turn and looked like the winner until Covington got MacBETH II into high gear in midstretch. MacBETH II's tremendous finishing kick gained him a length win over GALLIFET with WHITE, another with late speed, a length back.
