Start good and slow. Won easily; second and third driving. OMAHA escaped interference in the early crowding, was taken to the outside after the first quarter, raced to the lead gradually after reaching the half-mile post and held sway thereafter, winning easily. ROMAN SOLDIER worked his way to the outside after reaching the backstretch, responded well when called upon, but could not menace the winner. WHISKOLO raced to contending position with a rush, lost ground on the far turn and tired in the last three-sixteenths. NELLIE FLAG suffered interference soon after the start, was again impeded on the first turn and could not improve her position when clear in the last five-sixteenths. Scratched - Color Bearer, Chanceview, Calumet Dick, Prince Splendor.
