post as she was coming vo the leader Nancy F got the worst of it Penitent came on a if she may have the gift of instant speed and balance possessed by her mother and with master Penmans persistence he has plenty of it to help her closed on Budana too late Lucky Button always in the fray and slightly impeded with Nancy F was three parts of a length behind Penitent with Ultimata none too lucky

if she enjoyed such a trip in such company and won in a gallop by two lengths from the fast coming American Boy which seems to lie a confirmed lingerer Phalaris was third and Dorcas a dismal sixth
