He was , ridden bv Nicklaus, came from behind in the stretch and beat Hanson half a length in a driving tinish. There were eight starters and Harry Junior was a receeding favorite. In the early running ; Hanson tiattered his backers by dashing to the front and setting a fast pace. He led until well into the homestretch, where Boxer overhauled him and went oil to win going away. Dr. Larrick was third, half a dozen lengths back. Harry Junior was unfortunate in getting away poorly and when Karrick attempted to get through along the rail in entering the homestretch he was thrown against the fence bv Lady Barbary, which put him out of the struggle. It is doubtful it" he could have overtaken the leaders, however, for he was quitting at tiie end. There was a big improvement in weather conditions and the passing of the cold snap helped to bring out a large gatnering. Speculation was keen.
