first to show with Plantain second Debride Deride third with Dare II and Topmast lapped on Plantain went to the front on the first turn and entering the back stretch was a scant length better off than Storm King Flint on the latter despite the fact that he had top weight and was giving Hwa Ha 7 great chunks to everything in the race seeaied steadied to lose his head and instead of nursing liis leis horse and riding a waiting race hustled on to the front and forced the uace ace Passing the lialf loaf mile post Storm King was length and a half in front of the others and Flint was trying to get farther away Burns on Topmast real ¬ ized sized how fast the pace was and knowing it was almost impossible for Storm King to last cleverly waited for him to come back He al ¬ ways had Topmast in a good Dosition Position and sat jerfoctly perfectly still until the stretch was reached Hera Herat he went after Storm King and getting on even terms at the eighth post seemed at that point to have the
