The filly is a good looking miss, by Whisk Broom II. Cardamine, and may develop into a good racing machine, for despite her stumbling she overcame Miss Minks advantage and beat the latter home by a. close margin under a punishing drive. Oleaster, which finished third, might have been the winner but for his bad blunder in the stretch, which almost caused him to fall. The race, was always between the above trio.
