+ i + 1 WHERE BALLOT FIRST SHOWED HIS TRUE FORM + * It was in the Invincible Handicap that Ballot gave the racing public to understand that the enforced r.tireinent of Peter Fan had not left the Keen* stable without another three-year -old in all respects able to take his place. Peter Pat had won the Brighton Handicap, at a mile and a quarter, in 2:0;%. witli 115 pounds up. With two more pounds up Ballot won the. Invincible in exactly the same time and publicly demonstrated that there was practically no difference in the merits of the two grand colts. Incidentally, it was only hy a nose that Ballot prevented Dandelion from winning the Invincible two years in succession. Vegr. First. Age. Jockeys. Wt. Second. Age. Wt. Third. Age. Wt. Val. Time.
