exceptionally good fashion kept him in a forwardly position in the early running and sent him to the front when a good opening presented itself on the stretch turn Hanged alongside the others they seemed pygmies in comparison and his size and sturdlness was a factor in his success Of those be ¬ hind the leaders Kmerson Cochran made a splendid showing mill under a better judged ride Koyal II
