Spring Vale and Mark Denunzio both won by comfortable margins after showing the way throughout in the second and third races respectively. Saving ground rounding the second bond, where Mary Maxim bore out, Foster Embry took the lead in the sixth and never left the result in doubt during the last half mile of this contest Despite the contrary attractions of a college football game, much the largest crowd of the meeting turned out to witness the sport Jockey O.
