favorite from a good start dropped back and was outrun to the stretch There was no change in the order until entering the stretch turn where Johnson on Wrangle elected to go to the outside and in a furious drive tried to overhaul the leaders He finished with a wonderful display of speed but too late to be of any avail as SL Valentine gamely held on to the lead and crossed the winning line half a length ahead of the favorite Jolly tired badly in the last eighth after setting a fast pace and lost third place to Faith W in the final strides stridesThe The J 1C L Ross stable scored a double when Baby Grand and Lion dOr carried the Montreal turfmans colors to victory the former in the Southern Handicap and Lion dOr in the sixth race at threequarters of a mile mileBaby Baby Grand furnished a thrilling finish when he headed home the Quincy Stables Captain Alcock in the Southern Handicap which was a dash of a mile The Ross start ¬ er was ridden by jockey Lang and the vic ¬ tory was an immensely popular one The start was a good and fast one the field leaving in perfect alignment Lang was quick to seize the first opportunity to secure the lead and from an inside position hugged the rail and saved ground throughout Bril ¬ liant Jester raced in closest pursuit while Crank and Captain Alcock were far back Baby Grand was momentarily headed by Brillaint Jester after rounding the far turn then came again and drew away from the Seagram stable representative Just when success seemed assured Captain Alcock fin ¬ ishing with terrific speed almost snatched victory in the last stride
