Racing wide most of the way and bothered slightly leaving the final turn, Gene Lottis Euclid continued stubbornly when set down for the drive and wore down Pussy Cat from the Mrs. A. M. Creech stable in the final stride of the featured sixth race here today.

Burnt Child, favored in the wagering, finished sixth about four lengths away from the victor.
