He was pitted against six fair platers in a three-quarter mile dash and left the barrier In front, but when they reached the stretch he went to the outside fence and was apparently beaten, but he furnished a surprise by again racing into the lead and winning handily. Billy Witt, by a fast finish, took second place, and Glenister H. was third John Hager won the first race at liberal odds. He went to the front at the rise of the barrier and was never passed. Byrne Dear closed fast to take second from Shasta Graney. Peggy Brown, under a good ride by Peterson, made a strong finish to annex the second race. Ethel Haughton set the pace, but had nothing left when the winner charged. Jim Dahlman was third. Ninotte, odds-on choice, ran poorly and was unplaced. J. F. Jenkins, whose John Hager won the opener, scored a double when Finday won for him in the third. Finday had the most early speed and held on long enough to beat Move on Seth. Jockey C. Trippy rode both Jen-kins horses. Jockey Peterson piloted his second winner of the day, French Lady, in the fourth race. He won by many lengths from Herbertus and Wilmer the Wizard.
