colors of Marshall Bros accounted for the En ¬ quirer Handicap worth 8920 gross of which the winners net share amounted to 7430 St Bernard landed in second place and Dodge just managed to last long enough to finish in front of the fast coming placeFourteen Vulcanite for third place Fourteen started and the unwieldy field precluded the possibility of a true nin race over the narrow course and interference was frequent culminating finally when jockey Kederis on Dodge cut off Blackie Daw and when the latter was forced back The Porter which was closest ran into him catapulting his rider Simpson Courtship which had been lucky to leave the barrier in a good po ¬ sition and by virtue of his speed kept St Bernard close company was always clear of interference and drew out in the stretch
