Goshawk performed like a first-class colt and when be easily ran the five-eighths in B8t4 over a track that was not fast his race was decidedly impressive. Goshawk proved a rapid starter, rushing into a gocd lead in the first few strides and was always ear, while Morris had him under restraint at the end Better Luck was never far from the pace, but at the end was doing his best to withstand the rush of Spot Cash. This one bolted to the outside shortly after the start and had to close a considerable gap to take the short end of the purse. For a feature at Aqueduct the offering of the Queens County Jockey Club today was the Union Belling Stakes, a seven-eighths test for three-year-olds that was worth i»,-I 275 to the winner.

There was little change in these positions ! Until well into the stretch, where Opperman dropped back badly beaten. In the nean- . time Callahan had begun a long drive on | Brainstorm and Saddle and Boots was closing resolutely on an inside position. j Then at the eighth post Finality swerved j in and in doing so interfered with Saddle and Boots, and at the same time met with trouble himself when he was pocketed by Bigheart All this time Brainstorm, under the drive, was lucky to escape the interference and right at the end he drew out to win by a length and a half. When frci of interference Saddle and Boots closed with a good rush and he was only beaten a head for second place by the tirin? Bigheart, and Olynthus was just a length farther away.

Knight of the Heather beat the others away from the barrier, but Merimee eased him back after assuming an early lead and Cahalan, Cromwell and Halu all went on by and were racing closely lapped at the turn out of the back stretch with Cahalan on the Inside.
