regained his feet He suf ¬ fered numerous cuts about the face and a severe shaking up Treatment was admin ¬ istered at the track hospital hospitalThe The stewards after interviewing the riders in the

beating High Storm a nose for top honors and Ginestra following them just a head back The former two fought it out doggedly for leadership from the start and while they led home Ginestra the latter was probably best He encountered bad luck in the early stages and when he left the back stretch was in advance of only one of his seven opponents Racing around the others with a rush on the stretch turn and doing the following quarter with fine speed he did not get into serious contention until right near the end where he was going much the best
