The New Jersey-bred race for two-year-olds on Tuesday, June 21 was won by David O. Evans bay filly Free Advice by Ramillies Modest, by St. James. Evans, one of the states largest thoroughbred breeders, has his farm at Holmdel just a few miles west of Monmouth Park. The farm boasts some of the most modern of equipment, such as an elaborate hay drying apparatus and an irrigation system for watering pasture.

In his six starts last year, Lord Rusty won once and in three previous starts this year he ran second at Garden State Park the first time out: Harry Wells should have been well prepared for the win for throughout the afternoon before the race a woman sitting in a nearby box had been loudly touting the horse to her friends.
