Wilson and carried the silks of the Seagram Stable. Fast Mack finished second and Chloris was third. Pro-cyon and Doc Gaiety brought up the rear of the procession.

Wilson then assumed a lead of three lengths before taking the Galatine gelding under restraint. Doc Gaiety and Chloris were second and third around the turn. At the half Wallace went to work on Chloris. She responded gamely but was unequal to the task of cutting down the Kings Court lead under her impost of 118 pounds. She tired in the final drive and Fast Mack got up in the closing stride to take the second portion of the purse. Sultry weather again was the order but the crowd was the largest of the meeting though not up to expectations. There were about 7,000 in attendance. Thistlewood, from the Nevada Stock Farm, won the Glencoe Handicap, the secondary attraction under a good ride from Pete Walls. The race came third on the program. It was at three-quarters and engaged two-year-olds. Oland finished second and My Idol third. The three of them engaged in a thrilling stretch battle. Thistlewood was a neck in front of Oland at the finish and My Idol was beaten only a nose for the second portion of the purse. Thistlewood was in front from the turn to the finish.

Goodpastor owns the winner and T. Bonham rode him. Peter Piper held on for third money. He opened up a lead on his opponents in the back-stretch as usual but tired when the real racing began. Bonham had a good hold of Clem Theisen until straightened out but had to ride his mount out to hold Pennon safe. Twenty minutes were lost getting the horses to the post for the first race. The delay was occasioned by the antics of R. F. Carmans Sonny Bunny. The son of Meridian threw Jockey M. Liebgold into the fence near the three-quarters post. He was so badly injured that another rider was substituted, Lee accepting the mount. Sonny Bunny did the same thing to P. Gross at Devonshire and Liebgold subbed for the injured rider that day and won with the Meridian gelding. Four more minutes were lost dispatching the field after Lee returned to the post with Sonny Bunny. Toppanite won the race for the Joaquin Stable with L. Lang in the saddle. He was always close up and drew away into a three length lead over Belle Wood at the end of the five and a half furlongs. L. Lang rode his second winner of the afternoon in the fifth.
