Start good and slow. Won driving; second and third same. GEORGE SMITH was well ridden and, after being saved for the first three-quarters, rushed into the lead, but had to be urged at the end to outstay STAR HAWK. The latter, away slowly and trailing for a half-mile, came with a rush through the stretch and almost got up to win. FRANKLIN showed good speed, but tired after racing in close pursuit. DODGE raced well up throughout. THUNDERER had no mishap. DOMINANT set a fast early pace, but quit badly. LENA MISHA pulled up lame. Scratched - Isidore, Bulse, Huffaker.
