The days feature at Kenilworth Park was the Cadillac Hotel Handicap, for two-year-olds at fivo and a half furlongs. The winner came from an unexpected quarter when Arendal way victorious in a grueling drive from Canmore, while Donges was third and Bucado fourth. The start practically decided the race, as Pickens, who had the mount on Arendal, got the jump on the others and immediately steered for the inside rail, causing a slight jam and forcing several of the starters to take up. Arendal immediately went to tha front and set a fast pace for his opponents to follow. Lady Boss was the one to race in closest pursuit, while Heeltaps was heading Bucado, with Donges close up. Canmore, which had taken up after the barrier ris?, was racing some lengths back. When the field rounded the far turn there was a general closing up and Bucado moved into threatening contention, while Donges could not get to the leaders.

Donges was hard ridden at the end to gain third money by a short margin from Bucado. The time for the race was 1 :0G"s. SURPRISES ORDER OP J AY.
