The Canadian-bred mare Relle Malione won a hard earned victory in the Trenton Purse, the most pretentious offering of the day at Havre de Grace. Louise A, set a fast pace, with Relle Mahone in close pursuit to the last turn, where the pacemaker quit. Relle Malione then moved into the lead, but was forced to do her best to withstand the terrific closing rush of Duchess Lace. The latter had a rough time and ran a creditable race under most trying conditions and was apparently best. Herd Girl, a daughter of the mighty Colin, captured the opening dasli after a spirited stretch duel with Sub Rosa, the result being in doubt until the final strides.
