Jockey Dominick, who rode McChesney in the Oakwood Handicap, stated after the race that his mounf, while trailing the pacemakers, Allan-a-Dale and Waswift, had a steady hold of the bit, but when he passed into the lead, which he did while rounding the stretch turn, McChesney seemed to ease up of his own accord, thereby showing conclusively that the horse is a loafer and will not unnecessarily extend himself unless he is made to do it. T. C. McDowell stated before the running of the Oakwood Handicap that he thought his horse Allan-a-Dale would be a better horse after the race than he was before. When asked by a bystander for the meaning of his remark he replied: "Well, I have been running my horse of late in short races and I dont think he is exactly up to a bruising race over a distance." After the race it was reported that he had said: "If McChesney runs again with Allan-a-Dale McChesney ought to carry 140 pounds and my horse 100. "
