Love Tap, from a fast getaway, showed slightly in the lead for the first quarter, but Two Feathers then took command, with I.ove Tup and Polly Ann attending him fairly close up.

Rest Pal flattened them considerably .by racing for-wardly to. the stretch where he gave way. the cuppy footing bejing held responsible. Pegasus might have beaten Whiskaway hud he got off on even terms, but it is. doubtful, for the half brother of Flags raced at. a clip approaching his recent sensational morning trials and which have gained for him much favor. from his connections. The added equipment of blinkers that he carried in todays nice, steadied, him . .considerably and he began well.
